‘Turkish ultra-nationalists’ behind Russian airliner bombing, reports say

Russian investigators suspect an extreme Turkish nationalist group may have been involved in the bombing of a Russian airliner in Sinai in October, it has been claimed.

Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) suspects a radical Turkish group called the Grey Wolves had a hand in the attack that killed 224 people, according to a Russian newspaper.

Kommersant, one of Russia’s leading broadsheets, quoted an unnamed source saying the FSB had grounds to suspect the Grey Wolves were the “organised group” behind the bombing referred to by Alexander Bortnikov, the agency’s director, in December.
