The reports add to growing evidence that a bomb was placed on board Metrojet Flight 9268 before it took off from Sharm el-Sheikh airport, killing all 224 passengers and crew.The apparent involvement of the leaders of Isil, in Raqqa, in helping to plot the terrorist attack will alarm Western intelligence agencies.The unconfirmed reports of the possible involvement of British Jihadists in the attack comes after British intelligence was out in front of the rest of the world in concluding that a bomb most likely took down the plane.The “chatter” picked up by intelligence agencies appears to include a series of communications between the Sinai terrorist group, affiliated to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, and its leadership based in Syria.But the evacuation system - which involves hiring cargo planes to fly home passengers' checked luggage - could be disrupted if Russia aggressively steps up its own repatriation plans.There are around 80,000 Russian holiday makers in Sharm el-Sheikh and the Kremlin said it would send a fleet of 93 aircraft over the weekend to begin bring them home.
The first plane of holidaymakers to return to Manchester since the crisis has touched down to cheers of relief from those onboard.Prior to the explosion last Saturday, US intelligence agencies also intercepted a message from the terrorists in Sinai that warned of “something big in the area”.It is understood that details about how the plane was brought down were also intercepted, but the officials have thus far refused to go into detail.Until now, Isil had encouraged “lone wolf” attacks on foreign targets but had been unable to organise “a spectacular” atrocity on such a scale outside of Iraq and Syria.
“They [Isil leaders] were clearly celebrating,” a US official told NBC News.
