The latest air disaster coming on the heels of ISIS Jihadist group claim of responsibility for the last October bombing of a Russian passenger jetliner flying home 225 leisure tourists from the Egyptian resort of Sharm El-Sheikh is heightening concerns about Aviation security in Egypt.
Most foreign governments last October in response to the ISIS bombing of a Russian jetliner issued travel warnings for Egypt and demanded for a review of security protocols at its airports following revelation that a bomb concealed in a soda can and smuggled into the hold of the Russian jetliner while on ground Egypt was responsible for the crash.
Flight MS804 had 30 Egyptians. 15 French, 2 Iraqis and 1 national each from Algeria, Belgium, Chad, Portugal, Saudi Arabia and Sudan, a boy and two babies including seven crew and three security personnel on board.
