Egyptian rescue teams were looking today for more victims of a Russian passenger plane crash in Sinai, widening the search after finding bodies scattered for kilometres a day after the incident.

A military officer helping with the search told AFP that rescuers had found 163 bodies out of a total of 224 people who were on board the Airbus 321, which crashed after taking off from a Red Sea beach resort.

The plane was carrying 214 Russian and three Ukrainian passengers, along with seven crew members.

Rescuers have decided to widen the search perimeter to 15 kilometres 9 miles.
