The Egyptian military killed head of the Ansar Bait al-Maqdis group, which can be involved in the terror act on board A321, that had been downed over Sinai.

As it is reported, the leader swore allegiance to the Islamic State.

Before that, John Brennan, Director of the CIA, claimed that the Ansar Bait al-Maqdis fighters orchestrated and carried out the terror act on board of the Boeing A321, namely they brought a home-made explosive device on board of the plane.

As Pravda.Ru reported, the A321 airliner flew from Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg on 31 October 2015. In half an hour after take-off it disappeared over the Sinai peninsula. All the 217 passengers were killed.
