Russian delegation arrives in Egypt to begin crash investigation

CAIRO - Russian's transport minister and a team of high-level investigators have arrived in Cairo to help Egyptian authorities determine what caused a Russian airliner to crash in the Sinai Peninsula killing all 224 people on board.
The Airbus A321, operated by Russian airline Kogalymavia under the brand name Metrojet, was flying from the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh to St Petersburg in Russia when it went down in central Sinai soon after daybreak on Saturday.
It crashed into a mountainous area shortly after losing radar contact near cruising altitude.
