ST. PETERSBURG, November 2. /TASS/. Forty forensic scientists will identify the victims of the Russian Kogalymavia plane that crashed in Egypt on October 31 in North Sinai, First Deputy Health Ministry Igor Kagramanyan told journalists on Monday.
"Forty forensic scientists are working in St. Petersburg," Kagramanyan said.
Five ambulance brigades are working at the site where identification procedures will take place, he added. The brigades include doctors, nurses and psychologists.
