Egypt, Sinai Peninsula
November 3, 2015 at 15:01 GMT +00:00 · Published

Workers of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations (EMERCOM) investigated debris in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula on Tuesday, using drones in an attempt to collect more information on the Russian airliner that crashed in the area on Saturday. The team's central task was to recover the undiscovered remains of crash victims.

The investigators, arriving on board trucks, collected debris and personal objects thought to belong to victims of the crash. The objects, including luggage, shoes, and jewellery, are due to be taken back to St. Petersburg where they may be returned to victims’ family members.

Kogalymavia (Metrojet) flight 7K9268 crashed in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula around 23 minutes after take-off on Saturday, killing everyone on board. The passenger plane was heading to Saint Petersburg from Sharm el-Sheikh when it broke up in the air. The wreckage of the aircraft was scattered over a vast area of the Sinai Peninsula. There were a total of 224 people on board the Russian commercial plane - 217 passengers, including 25 children and seven crew members. Reports indicate that all but five passengers - four Ukrainians and one Belarusian - were Russian.
