British PM Hints at 'Likely' Bomb On Board A321, But Offers No Proof
MOSCOW (Sputnik) – When asked if London planned on sharing the information based on its intelligence with Moscow, the spokesman said it has already shared some information, but other information remains “sensitive” and cannot be shared at the present time.

“As a matter of routine, we do not comment on intelligence matters. However, we have taken decisions based on the information available to us. As the [Prime Minister] and [Foreign Secretary] have said, there is a high probability the Russian airliner was brought down by an explosive device,” a Foreign Office spokesman said.

“As [the] Ministers have said, we have made our assessments on the basis of the information we have; and have shared our conclusions with partners, including Russia. Some of our information is sensitive, but we have shared what we can,” the spokesman said.
