ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) British Prime Minister David Cameron said it was more likely than not that a bomb brought down a Russian airplane over Egypt last week. "We cannot be certain that the Russian airliner was brought down by a terrorist bomb, but it looks increasingly likely that that was the case," Cameron said on Thursday (November 5) before a meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi who is on a visit to Britain. Cameron announced that Britain was suspending all flights between Britain and the resort of Sharm al-Sheikh to ensure the safety of British citizens. He said Britain had acted before the investigation was complete because the intelligence they had "gave us the concern that it was more likely than not it was a terrorist bomb". "We need to put in place more security at that airport so it's safe to fly people home. That's our priority, that's what we'll work with the Egyptians to do," he said.
