The Russian holiday jet crash is likely to have been caused by an explosion in one of the engines, it was revealed today.

Sources in Egypt say this conclusion came from initial analysis of the black box recorders and observations at the crash site.

The report by Egyptian newspaper Al-Masry Al-Youm did not elaborate on whether the blast was caused by a technical fault or a bomb.

However, Russian news outlet LifeNews, citing the same source, reported that a fire caused by a ‘technical failure’ in one of the engines triggered an explosion.

The revelations come after disturbing video emerged of the smouldering wreckage of the Airbus A321 which crashed in Egypt on Saturday killing all 224 people on board.
