Terrorism suspected in Russian plane crash

Russian authorities now believe the Russian plane that crashed over Egypt last month was brought down by a bomb blast. It's the first time the Russians have said this was the result of terrorist activity.

The announcement comes after recent attacks on Paris and Beirut by the Islamic State (ISIS), in which nearly two hundred people were killed.

Stephen Grootes on Tuesday spoke to EWN's Russia correspondent Paula Slier about this report.
