MOSCOW, November 3. /TASS/. The Interstate Aviation Committee neither confirms nor denies speculations about a heat flash over the Sinai Peninsula at the moment of the A321 Russian passenger jet crash.
"At this point we can neither confirm nor deny this," an IAC official has told TASS.
Earlier, the CBS television network said a US satellite operating in the infrared range spotted a heat flash over the Sinai Peninsula at the moment of the A321 crash.
"The data is still being analyzed in an effort to determine what caused the flash. One possibility is a bomb, but an explosion in a fuel tank or engine as the result of a mechanical failure is also possible," says a news story on the CBS website.
A Russian passenger jet A321 of the minor Russian air carrier Kogalymavia (flight 9268 from Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg) crashed near El-Hasna on October 31. All 217 passengers and seven crew on board died.
