MOSCOW, November 2. /TASS/. Russian Emergencies Ministry’s rescuers have found new fragments of the fuselage at the crash site of Kogalymavia Flight 9268 in Egypt’s North Sinai, head of the ministry’s department of firefighting and rescue forces Alexander Agafonov said on Monday.
"A group of Emergencies Ministry’s rescuers found 12 fragments of the fuselage," Agafonov told the session of the governmental commission’s working group.
More than 100 rescuers from Emergencies Ministry’s Tsentrospas and Leader centers are working at the crash site. They are searching through the crash area of 20 square kilometers.
"Four groups are working there," Agafonov said adding that they are searching for the remains of the victims and their personal belongings. "Personal belongings will be sent to Cairo," Agafonov noted.
Russian Kogalymavia’s A321 plane en route from Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg crashed on October 31 around 30 minutes after takeoff in North Sinai, 100 kilometers to the south of Al-Arish. Flight 9268 carried 217 passengers and seven crewmembers. Egyptian authorities said no one survived in the crash. Most passengers were Russian nationals. Among the people onboard were also four Ukrainian citizens and one Belarusian national.
