Russia admits Sinai plane disaster was an act of terror; ...Putin vows to hunt down terrorists in any part of planet!

Vladimir Putin has said a terrorist bomb was responsible for bringing down a Russian jet over the Sinai desert last month with the loss of 224 lives.

The Russian president claimed that the jet was blown up by a home-made bomb containing 1.5kg of explosives.

In response, Egyptian authorities arrested two airport employees accused of helping ISIS to smuggle the device onto the aircraft.

A $50 million reward has been offered for information leading to the capture of the terror cell responsible for the atrocity.
An Egyptian spokesman said: 'Seventeen people are being held, two of them are suspected of helping whoever planted the bomb on the plane at Sharm al-Sheikh airport.'
The Airbus A321 disappeared 23 minutes after leaving Sharm el-Sheikh airport en-route to St Petersburg.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack on the Metrojet aircraft which crashed on October 31.

Alexander Bortnikov, head of the FSB security agency told Russian President Vladimir Putin: 'One can say unambiguously that it was a terror act.
'An improvised bomb with a capacity of up to 1.5 kg of TNT exploded on the fight.

'As a result, the aircraft was torn apart in the air, which explains the large distance over which the pieces of the fuselage of the aircraft have scattered.'
President Putin has vowed to avenge the perpetrators: 'It's not the first time Russia faces barbaric terrorist crimes.'

His country would 'never forget' such attacks.
'Killing our people at Sinai is among the most bloody crimes judging by the number of victims.

'And we won't wipe our tears away from our hearts and souls. It will remain with us forever.

'But it won't stop us from finding and punishing the criminals.'

He vowed: 'We must do it without time limitation.

'We must know each name. We will search for them everywhere, wherever they will hide. We will find them in any part of planet and punish them.'

'There is no statute of limitation on this.'

He added: 'The combat work of our aviation in Syria must not only be continued. It must be intensified so that the criminals understand that vengeance is inevitable.'
As a result, Putin has ordered an increase in the intensity of airstrikes against ISIS targets in Syria. This comes as France launched a second night of raids against terror locations in Raqqa in response to the Paris massacre.
