An American satellite recorded a thermal flash over Sinai at the time of the crash of the Kogalymavia airliner.
According to experts, the flash could indicate either an explosion in the fuel tank or a bomb detonation. A US infrared satellite recorded a thermal flash over the Sinai Peninsula at the time of the crash of the Russian plane, CBS News reports. However, it was later reported that the thermal flashes could be either connected with explosions at the time when the plane hit the ground. It could also be possible that the recorded flashes were not related to the crash of the Russian passenger jet, Pentagon officials said.
The thermal flashes were recorded in the area of combat clashes with Islamist fighters and could therefore had no connection with the Russian plane, a Pentagon official said.
Meanwhile, the information that was obtained from flight recorders did not confirm the version of an external impact.
