Russia dismisses ISIS' claim on downed jet

The crash happened in the general area of northern Sinai where Egyptian security forces have for years battled local Islamic militants who in recent months claimed allegiance to ISIS.

The Egypt-based extremists claimed they took the plane down "in response to Russian air strikes that killed hundreds of Muslims on Syrian land," according to Reuters.
