ISIS has said it smuggled a bomb on board a Russian airliner that went down last month, after discovering a "way to compromise the security" at an Egyptian airport.

The group published what it said were pictures of the explosive, apparently contained in a soda can, and of passports that had belonged to the dead passengers and were retrieved from the crash site in the Sinai Peninsula.

The latest edition of its official online magazine Dabiq said ISIS had initially planned to down a plane belonging to a country from the US-led coalition targeting militants in Iraq and Syria.

The militants decided to instead target the Russian plane departing the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh after Moscow began an air campaign in Syria in late September, the magazine said.

Another False Flag Propaganda
Another false flag claim from these proxy Toyota ghost army. These were the same clowns that showed a video of a Boeing they claimed they downed under the pretext it was the Russian plane where in reality the Russian plane was an Airbus. Imbeciles. Weeks later they are now showing a soda can wireless enabled bomb that took down the plane. With our technology in this day in age, satellites allegedly can make out the color of your eyes from space but we can't track a wireless or cell phone connection tied to this home-made soda can technology? Give me a break. This is pure western initiated propaganda trying to target Egypt's economy and its relation with Russia.
