A newspaper report, however, suggests the audio contains intriguing information at the least: One of the pilots is heard leaving the cockpit, then banging on the door with increasing urgency in an unsuccessful attempt to get back in.

“The guy outside is knocking lightly on the door and there is no answer,” The New York Times quotes an unidentified investigator as saying. “And then he hits the door stronger and no answer. There is never an answer.”

Eventually, the newspaper quotes the investigator as saying: “You can hear he is trying to smash the door down.”

Russia's 'junk' bonds paying off handsomely

Investment banks from Goldman Sachs to Bank of America, as well as Russia’s own VTB and Rosbank, are all bullish on Russian bonds. After a disastrous 2014 they may finally be heading for a revival.

Bondholders in Russia are making out like bandits in 2015, with corporate bondholders seeing a 7.3 percent return this year, according to Bloomberg data.

“It’s very simple advice. Bonds are much more attractive than a year ago. Risks related to the ruble have subsided, inflation is likely to moderate, the BoP (Balance of Payments) and budget situation look reasonably strong and that is why the outlook is quite favorable,” Vladimir Kolychev, Chief Economist for Russia at VTB Capital, told RT.
