[MOSCOW] Russia's security chief told President Vladimir Putin that a plane carrying 224 people over Sinai was downed due to a "terror attack," the Kremlin said on Tuesday.

"One can say unambiguously that it was a terror act," the head of the FSB security agency, Alexander Bortnikov, told Putin in a meeting the day before. Citing experts, he said the plane disintegrated in midair due to a bomb with the equivalent of a kilo of TNT.
