Investigators are pursuing their probe of a mysterious Russian airliner crash in the Sinai PeninsulaA bombing claimed by the Islamic State group Wednesday killed at least four policemen in Egypt’s Sinai, as investigators pursued their probe of a mysterious Russian airliner crash in the peninsula. The jihadist group had also said it was behind Saturday’s downing of the Airbus A321, which crashed shortly after taking off from a south Sinai resort, but there has been no evidence yet to support the claim and experts say a mechanical failure may have been the cause. All 224 people on board the flight bound for Saint Petersburg, mainly Russian tourists, were killed.
