Senior intelligence, military and national security figures said they were increasingly sure the plane had been the subject of a terrorist attack when it broke apart and crashed in the Sinai desert on 31 October.

It comes as an Egyptian official said investigators were “90 per cent sure” that the “unknown noise” heard in the final second of a black box recording on the downed Russian passenger jet is of a bomb.

The unnamed source told Reuters news agency that the indications and analysis so far of the sound on the black box indicate it was a bomb.
