Passenger aircraft with 220 onboard goes off radar

A Russian plane carrying over 220 people has been lost from radars, according to sources in the Russian and Egyptian air traffic controllers. There have been reports the plane crashed over Sinai.

Egyptian Prime Minister Sherif Ismail confirmed that the Russian plane did crash in the Sinai.

Earlier, the Egyptian air accident chief said the Russian plane had safely left Egyptian airspace and made contact with Turkish air traffic control.

A source in the Russian air traffic controller told Ria Novosti that the plane went missing near Cyprus rather than over Sinai. But some Egyptian media claim the crash site has already been discovered in Egypt.
