Russia on Monday started bringing home the bodies of victims from the weekend’s passenger plane crash in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula as Russians nationwide observed a day of mourning amid a massive outpouring of grief. The Metrojet Airbus A321-200 crashed on Saturday shortly after takeoff from the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh en route to St. Petersburg, breaking up at high altitude and scattering fragments of wreckage over a wide area in Sinai. All 224 people on board died; an overwhelming majority of passengers were Russian. A Russian government plane brought home bodies of 140 passengers, landing at St. Petersburg’s Pulkovo airport early on Monday. Russian news agencies say the government will be dispatching a second plane to bring back more remains later in the day.
