Russia confirmed for the first time Tuesday a homemade bomb caused the Metrojet passenger plane crash over the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt last month, killing all 224 people on board.
"An improvised explosive device equivalent of up to 1.5 kilograms of TNT went off during the flight. I can therefore unequivocally say that this was an act of terrorism," said Alexander Bortnikov, the head of Russia's Federal Security Service.
