Obama: possible terrorist attack

President Barack Obama said that there was “a possibility” that a terrorist bomb was responsible for the crash of a Russian passenger plane last Saturday over the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt.

Obama said in a radio interview that there may have been a bomb on the plane, but he did not go as far as his counterparts in Britain, who have suggested that the destruction of the plane, was most likely the result of a terrorist explosion.

“I don’t think we know yet,” Obama told the Seattle radio station KIRO during an interview broadcast Thursday afternoon.

“Whenever you’ve got a plane crash, first of all you’ve got the tragedy, you’ve got making sure there’s an investigation on site. I think there is a possibility that there was a bomb on board. And we are taking that very seriously.”
