The US Department of Homeland Security announced new security measures on Friday
at some foreign airports for flights into the US, and Russia suspended all air travel to Egypt, amid mounting intelligence that a bomb brought down the Russian passenger plane that crashed last
Saturday in the Sinai, killing all 224 people aboard.
A day earlier, the United Kingdom suspended all flights over the restive Sinai
Peninsula, following French carrier Air France and Germany’s Lufthansa, both of which banned flights to the area last week.
