CAIRO — A preliminary investigation into the crash of a Russian passenger plane has found no indication yet of any “illegal or terrorist act,” Egypt’s chief investigator said in a report released Monday.

The vaguely worded statement released by Ayman el-Muqadam said the investigation committee so far has not found “any evidence” indicating foul play in the Oct. 31 downing of the plane, killing all 224 people onboard, mostly Russian vacationers. The committee is “continuing its work,” it said.
