• Plane went down over the Sinai on October 31 in disaster killing 224 people
• Forensic tests have now revealed bomb was stuffed under seat 30A or 31A
• Maria Ivleva, 15, was in 31A and travelling back from holiday with mother
• Nadezhda Bashakova, 77, was in 30A, and it’s thought both died instantly

The
bomb that blew up a Russian airliner over the Sinai desert last month
was probably hidden under the seat of a 15-year-old girl, investigators
believe.
Holidaymaker Maria Ivleva would have been killed instantly by the huge explosion just inches beneath her.
Reports
in say the device – which killed 224 people on October 31 – was
likely to have been planted under seat 31A, where Miss Ivleva was
sitting.

The teenager from St Petersburg had been on holiday in Sharm
El Sheikh with her 44-year-old mother Marina, who was sitting in seat
31B.
There is no suggestion that any of the Russian tourists were suicide bombers.

Instead one theory put forward is that the explosive device
could have been planted under the seat in the space where the
lifejacket is supposed to be.
The bomb, which IS has claimed
responsibility for, destroyed six rows of seats and left a huge hole in
the tail of the plane which sent it tumbling out of the sky at a rate of
6,000ft a minute.
Russian channel LifeNews reported:
“Investigators and secret service experts have managed to locate the
seat under which the terrorists planted the bomb which destroyed Airbus
A321. The bomb – which was equal to one kilo of TNT – exploded and its
force went forwards and hit the rows up to 27. The wave went slightly
backwards too and hit row 32. The experts who tested the parts and
bodies noted that the people who occupied the seats near the bomb almost
certainly died at once.”
Investigators said the bomb may also
have been planted under seat 30A, where 77-year-old Russian pensioner
Nadezhda Bashakova was sitting.
The Kremlin has offered a
£33million reward for information about the incident on October 31,
which was Russia’s worst-ever air disaster.
