Investigators pursuing theory that terrorist bomb could have been put inside passenger's luggage in Sharm el-Sheikh hotel room
This is being reported in all British newspapers tonight. I hope this isn't correct because if it was to be true then this could easily happen in lots of other Countries. The logistics of trying to monitor this would be an absolute nightmare.
What they don't seem to be considering is whether this could have been a suicide bomber. If security at the airport was as lax as all the authorities seem to be saying then I suppose anyone could have made their way through without much scrutiny, someone could have even paid to go through which seems to be common place.
Flight 9268 was carrying a total of 224 people, consisting of 217 passengers, of which twenty five were children, and seven crew members. Most of the passengers were Russian, according to the Russian embassy, and a majority were female. There were also four Ukrainians and one Belarusian on board. Most of the passengers were tourists returning from Red Sea resorts. The Association of Tour Operators of Russia released the passenger manifest of all those thought to have been on the flight. The majority of the passengers were from Northwest Russia, including Saint Petersburg and the surrounding Leningrad, Novgorod and Pskov oblasts.
