Representatives of Russian special services and Egyptian law enforcement agencies conduct joint investigation to detect the whereabouts of the terrorist, who exploded the A321 airliner with Russian passengers on board on October 31, 2015.
Special services are currently looking for six people, including the alleged person, who planted the bomb in the cabin of the aircraft.
The bomb was placed in the cabin by an employee of the Egyptian airport. The suspect got employed at the airport shortly before the day of the disaster and then disappeared after the tragedy occurred.
The perpetrator was working at the airport as a loader. He was one of the people who were loading passengers' luggage onto the airplane and was allowed to go to the airfield.

So does that mean that now it is official, re the Egyptian Gov, that the plane was brought down by a bomb?

No confirmation from Egyptian authorities as far as I'm aware.

The usual denials (see Reuters).

At this point the previous reports should be viewed as 'unconfirmed '
