A new BBC report claims that British intelligence believes a bomb was put in the hold prior to take-off.

The Russian Metrojet Airbus A321 flying from Sharm el-Sheikh to St Petersburg crashed over Sinai on Saturday, killing all 224 people on board. Most of the victims were Russian. The UK has though taken a leading role investigating the cause of the crash. This has already annoyed Russia and Egypt.

The BBC has just released a report with more specifics on what the UK investigators believe has happened. A bomb was supposedly placed in the cargo hold of the  Metrojet Airbus A321. This theory is based on intercepted communication between militants in the Sinai Peninsula says BBC.

Several airlines have stopped flying to Sharm el-Sheikh. The Russians are still flying. Egypt and Russia still maintain the stand point that it is too early to say what caused the airplane crash.

Obama said yesterday that a bomb is a possibility. The UK investigators seem to have proof. There is no official statement yet. UK's Prime Minister Cameron is likely right now busy fixing the relationship with Putin. Russia does not like it that the UK is virtually taking the lead in the investigations. Egypt is fearing big losses in tourism. If indeed a bomb caused the crash, no tourist will fly tor Sharm el-Sheikh for a long time.

There are an estimated 20,000 British tourists stuck in Sharm el-Sheikh right now. They are supposed to be flying out today.
