ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) - Officials with the Russian airline Metrojet say something outside its plane caused it to crash in Egypt's Sinai desert.

Viktor Yung, a director general of Metrojet, says "from the moment since the events took a tragic turn, the crew became incapacitated."

Russia's emergency situations minister says he has examined both of the plane's black boxes and they're in good condition.

Saturday's crash killed all 224 people on board as they flew from Egypt's Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg, Russia.
