strong. good evening. and we begin tonight with that midair catastrophe. this evening, british intelligence authorities are now saying it was more likely a bomb than mechanical failure. britain even taking action, halting some flights to egypt. of course, that russian passenger jet breaking apart in air, killing all 224 people on board. there are new aimimages tonight, moments after the crash. isis has claimed responsibility before, and did so again today. u.s. officials tonight saying preliminary information including intercepts suggests that a bomb may have brought down the plane. abc's chief investigative correspondent brian ross leading us off. >> reporter: counterterrorism officials tonight say new intelligence makes them believe it was more likely that a bomb, not a mechanical issue, brought down the russian jet liner. >> we have concluded that there
that that crash was caused by an explosive device on board the aircraft. >> reporter: officials in egypt tonight say investigators are looking for evidence that passengers in the back of the plane may have had injuries from an explosion, including shrapnel in their bodies, as an indication where a bomb might have been hidden. alex marquardt of abc news is in cairo. >> reporter: egyptian officials have been quick to hit back on any talk of terrorism. the foreign minister calling it premature and catastrophic for egyptian tourism. the analysis of the black boxes has begun here, but the cockpit voice recorder was damaged. and investigators say a lot more work is needed. >> reporter: within hours of the group, an ice sis-connected group said it was responsible. a claim initially disputed by u.s. officials. but now the group has become the prime suspect, and today, it posted a second claim of responsibility. the russian flight left saturday from the sharm el sheikh airport in egypt, where today, all
were suspended after british officials told abc news they found extremely lax security there. >> terror groups operating in the region have been working extremely hard to develop explosives that can be smuggled onto an airplane undetected. >> reporter: as u.s. and british officials have common straited, small amount of explosives can cause catastrophic damage to an airplane. >> in milliseconds, the aircraft would basically break apart. >> reporter: even before the 9/11 attacks, passenger planes had long been and remain a prime target of terrorists. a bomb brought down pan am flight 103 in 1988, killing 270 people. and al qaeda has since tried unsuccessfully with bombs hidden in underwear, a shoe and printer cartridges. for the u.s. tonight, the concern is whether terrorists have now developed a new explosive that cannot be detected by standard screening procedures. and officials tonight are considering whether extra security measures are needed for u.s. flights heading in and out of that region, david.
>> and brian, you heard what we said at the top, that u.s. officials say preliminary information suggests a bomb might have been the cause. i would gather that the u.s. is working with the british authorities tonight. >> reporter: absolutely. it seems to be leaning in that direction at this point. >> all right, brian ross, thank you. meantime, back here at home, flights halted for a time at an american airport in san diego. a full ground stop for a time, after a frightening standoff on the ground not far from the airport. an active shooter.
