Forensic tests reveal bomb that brought down Russian plane was stuffed under seat 30A or 31A

This young girl was sitting on top of the bomb that brought down the Russian jet when it went off with the force of 'a kilo of TNT' from underneath her seat.

Maria Ivleva, 15, is thought to have been the first to die in the tragedy above the Sinai as crash investigators narrowed down the source of the explosion to underneath one of two seats.

Investigators say the bomb, which killed 224 people, was underneath either seat 31A, where Maria was sat, or 30A, where 77-year-old Nadezhda Bashakova was sitting directly in front of her.

One theory is that the bomb could have been placed under the seat in the space where the lifejacket is usually located.

The blast zone for the bomb, which Isis has claimed responsibility for, would have spanned across six rows of seats and left a huge hole in the tail of the plane which sent it tumbling out of the sky at a rate of 6,000 ft per minute. 

'Investigators and secret service experts managed to locate the seat under which the terrorists planted the bomb which destroyed Airbus A321,' said the report in the pro-Kremlin media.

Daily mial reports  that the bomb which was equal to one kilo of TNT exploded and its forces went forwards and hit the rows up to 27. The wave went slightly backwards too and hit the row 32. 

'The experts who tested the parts and bodies noted that the people who occupied the seats near the bomb, almost certainly died at once.' 
The seats - and those around 30A and 31A - were occupied by Russian tourists who had been to Sharm El Sheikh.

There is no suggestion they were suicide bombers, instead they were seen as innocent victims among the 224 who perished in Russia's worst-ever air disaster.

Instead the Russian authorities are working closely with the Egyptians and British - who first provided intelligence suggesting a bomb was on board - to discover who planted it.
