A Russian passenger plane en route to Ufa made a forced landing in Egypt's Sharm El-Sheikh early on Thursday after suffering engine failure, Al-Ahram Arabic reported.

The 232-passenger plane returned to Sharm El-Sheikh International Airport, from where it took off at dawn, landing at around 7am, an emergency official in the South Sinai governorate said.

The plane, which also had nine crew members, landed safely with no injuries reported. Four passengers suffering stress-like symptoms were aided by airport authorities. Twenty ambulances were dispatched to the scene as a precaution.

The cause of the engine shutdown was not yet known.
