ST PETERSBURG, November 4. /TASS/. Bodies of 53 people killed when a Russian A321 plane flying from Sharm El-Sheikh to St. Petersburg came down in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, an official in charge of St. Petersburg’s social policy told reporters on Wednesday.
"As of today, 53 bodies have been identified," Aleksandr Rzhanenkov said. "Tomorrow, there will be a definite number but the others are still unidentified. So an indefinite phase of expectation has started and this is about waiting for results of genetic tests."
