The Islamic State militant group claimed that they crashed the Russian airplane over Egypt in late October with a bomb made from a soda can.

The group published a photo in the newest edition of its online magazine Dabiq.

Russian officials said on Tuesday a bomb blew up the plane traveling from Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg. The crash killed 224 people.
