MOSCOW (AP) -Russia is offering a $50 million reward for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for downing the Metrojet passenger plane over Egypt.

This, after Russia's security service announced today that a homemade bomb blew apartment the aircraft Oct. 31 as it flew from the Egyptian resort Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg, Russia, killing all 224 people aboard.

Officials say it's now clear that the incident was a "terrorist" act.
