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 comes, after Russia's security service announced Tuesday that a homemade bomb blew apart the aircraft on October 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.
