Sinai crash: Russia plane flight recorders to be examined


Investigators are turning their attention to the flight recorders retrieved from the wreckage of a Russian plane that crashed in Egypt.

Egypt says its experts are being joined by teams from Russia and also the Republic of Ireland, where the Airbus 321 was registered.

It crashed over the Sinai peninsula, killing all 224 people on board.

Egypt dismissed as "propaganda" claims that militants linked to Islamic State (IS) brought down the aircraft.

President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi told the BBC that it was too early to say what had caused the crash.

The aircraft - flying from Sharm el-Sheikh to St Petersburg - is thought to have broken up in mid-air.
