The Australian newspaper reports that analysis of black boxes from the Russian plane that crashed in Egypt killing 224 people points to a bomb. They cited sources close to the probe. Also Moscow has now halted flights to the country.
With mounting evidence of a bomb being the most likely explanation, the story picks up the aftermath. The US has stepped up security scanning for US flights originating in the Middle East. Egypt facees destruction of her tourist industry once again, thanks to the terrorists.
I sense that attention will now return to President Putin as he considers Russia options to redress the killing of 224 Russian citizens.
