(CNN) – Egyptian investigators have found no evidence of terrorism in the Russian passenger jet crash that killed 224 people in October, a preliminary report by the Civil Aviation Ministry said Monday.
“The technical investigation committee has not found anything thus far that indicates illegitimate interference or an act of terrorism,” Egypt’s lead investigator Ayman Al-Muqaddam said in the report.
The investigation is ongoing, he said. Russia said it had found evidence that a bomb caused the crash. The ISIS terror group claimed responsibility for downing the plane.
