There are accusations of serious security problems at Egypt’s Sharm el-Sheik airport where a Russian airliner took off on it’s doomed flight over a week ago.
The chartered jet crashed into the Sinai desert 23 minutes after takeoff, killing all 224 people on board, mostly Russians heading to St. Petersburg after a vacation at the famous resort.
Now we’re hearing from airport security officials who claim that poorly paid police officers who monitor machines that X-ray luggage often take bribes,
And officials say a key machine that scans luggage often doesn’t work.
Egyptian officials say it’s still too soon to blame the crash on a terrorist bomb planted on the plane, but some experts in the U-S and U-K say they’re almost certain that it was a bomb that was smuggled on to the plane at Sharm el-Sheik.
