A Russian passenger plane has crashed early Saturday in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, killing all 224 people aboard.

Russian state media reported that many of the 224 passengers on Kogalymavia Flight 9268 were Russians returning from vacation. The passenger manifest included 17 children but Russian officials said there were 25 aboard and seven crew members.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin tweeted that four victims were also Ukrainian nationals.

The cause of the crash still is unknown, but it is most likely due to a technical failure, and there is no evidence of any terrorist action, Egyptian Airports Co. chief Adel Al-Mahjoob told CNN Arabic.

But other news websites are reporting that ISIS have claimed the attack. According to them, they claimed it via a twitter handle in arabic. See more photos from the crash after the cut. really sad.
