Bomb downed Russian plane

A homemade explosive device brought down a Russian passenger plane over Egypt last month, the head of Russia's security service said Tuesday, telling President Vladimir Putin it's now clear the crash that killed 224 people was a "terrorist" act and offering a $50 million reward for information leading to arrests. The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant had already claimed responsibility for the attack, and Putin vowed to hunt down those who carried it out. Russian war planes struck Raqqa, the ISIL capital in Syria, and other targets Tuesday.
