ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (CNN)–

A new issue of ISIS’ online magazine Dabiq contains what it claims is a picture of the bomb that brought down a Russian passenger jet over Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula last month.

The picture shows a soft drink can, a wire and what appears to be a switch.

Metrojet Flight 9268 crashed on October 31 after departing from the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh for the Russian city of St. Petersburg, killing all 224 people on board.

On Tuesday, the head of the Russian Federal Security Service said the plane was downed by a bomb estimated to contain 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) of explosives.

The Russian government is offering a $50 million reward for information about those who brought it down.
