Welcome to this Veterans Day edition of CNN STUDENT NEWS.
I'm Carl Azuz at the CNN Center.
Coverage of the holiday is coming up.
We're going to start by catching you up on the Russian plane that crashed in Egypt on October 31st.
One American official has said U.S. intelligence is 99.9 percent that terrorists bombed MetroJet Flight 9268.
But investigators don't have enough evidence yet to prove it 100 percent and they're also not sure how the alleged bomb would have gotten on the plane.
Thousands of tourists are all still stranded in the Egyptian city of Sharm el-Sheikh.
Last week, Russia suspended all of its flight to and from the resort.
Since the crash, a terrorist group affiliated with ISIS but located in Egypt has said it brought down the flight.
And terrorist activity in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula where the plane crashed has been on the rise.
Understanding the Sinai Peninsula.
The Sinai Peninsula is divided into North Sinai and South Sinai.
The north is really just a flat desert area. It's very arid.
There's barely anything that grows there.
In the south, you have a lot of mountains and also the Red Sea in the southeast.
And the Sinai Peninsula is basically an area between what many people call Egypt proper and Israel and it's supposed to serve as a buffer zone between the two countries.
It was contested for a very long time and actually occupied by Israel for about 15 years.
You have longstanding issues in the Sinai.
One of the things that's happened is that people who lived in the Sinai, the Bedouin tribes, have been disenfranchised from the Egyptian state for a very long time.
They haven't had development of electricity, development of water.
And while the Egyptians have tried to turn the Red Sea area into like a riviera, with many of the coastal towns there like Sharm el-Sheikh, like Hurghada, the Bedouins really haven't profited from that at all.
Many of them have no access to economic development.
And that's one of the reasons you have drug trafficking, smuggling into places like Gaza, people trafficking as well.
It's not something that's generally condoned by the Bedouin tribal leaders, but certainly something that does go on.
And because of this lawless situation, many jihadists from other parts of Egypt have come there as well, and, of course, foreign fighters, too.
The Islamist insurgency in Sinai has gone through various phase.
A lot of things changed into 2011, with the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak.
Since then, the security situation in Sinai has deteriorated even more than it was before.
The security forces have become even weaker, and the Islamist urgency flourished.
All of that changed again in 2013 when Abdel Fatah Sisi took over, and with that, he launched a crackdown on many of the Islamists that was really pretty heavy-handed.
And since then, what you're seeing is these groups have morphed more and more.
And the main group has since declared allegiance to ISIS and has since then tried to turn parts of the Sinai into a caliphate.
They're actually trying to hold terrain.
It's a big difference between this group and other Islamist groups of the past.
And with the security situation the way it is, ISIS in that place has been flourishing for quite some time now.
A new report by Coldwell Banker, a U.S. real estate company, gives an interesting lesson in economics and the housing market.
Nationally,it found that the average price for a four-bedroom, two-bathroom was just over 302,000.
But that price for the same size house could range from as little as 75,000 to as much as 2.3 million.
The major factor: location, location, location.
Nine of the ten most expensive housing markets in America are in California.
Buyers need at least 1.3 million to get in the door, in places like Redwood City and Sunnyvale.
Now, contrast that with Cleveland, Ohio, and Riverdale, Georgia, where 75,000 to 80,000 can ring the doorbell.
Coldwell Banker pointed out that there are affordable homes in California, outside of its highest priced markets.
The most expensive state to buy a home is Hawaii.
Many of the least expensive ones are in the American Midwest.
As always, we're covering some real estate on our "Roll Call".
We'll start in Cleveland, Oklahoma, where we heard from the Tigers.
Cleveland High School is on the prowl.
We'll move southeast to Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
The buzz there is all about the Yellowjackets of Dixie Attendance Center.
And next, we'll leap most of the way across the Pacific, landing on the island of Guam.
