    Default Explosion Kills 31 at Moscow's Busiest Airport

    An explosion ripped through the international arrivals hall at Moscow's busiest airport on Monday, killing 31 people and wounding about 130, Health Ministry officials said.

    Russian news agencies reported the explosion was caused by a suicide bomber and that the device was packed with shrapnel.



    "From the preliminary information we have it was a terror attack," President Dmitry Medvedev told officials.

    Moscow police were put on high alert and immediately beefed up patrols in the subway system, a previous target of terrorists.

    Mark Green, a British Airways passenger who had just arrived at the airport, told BBC television he heard the huge explosion as he was leaving the terminal.

    "Literally, it shook you," he said. "As we were putting the bags in the car a lot of alarms ... were going off and people started flowing out of the terminal, some of whom were covered in blood."

    "One gentleman had a pair of jeans on that was ripped and his thigh from his groin to his knee was covered in blood," he added.

    Green said thousands of people were in the terminal at the time of the blast.

    Domodedovo is generally regarded as Moscow's most up-to-date airport, but its security procedures have been called into question.

    In 2004, two suicide bombers were able to board planes at Domodedovo by buying tickets illegally from airport personnel. The bombers blew themselves up in mid-air, killing all 90 people aboard the two flights.

    Built in 1964, Domodedovo is located 26 miles southeast of the center of Moscow and is the largest of the three major airports that serve the Russian capital, serving over 22 million people last year.

    Terrorists have targeted other transportation centers in Moscow.

    In more recent suicide bombings, twin blasts in the subway last March killed 39 people and wounded more than 60 people.

    In December 2009, Chechen rebels claimed responsibility for blowing up a high-speed train between Moscow and St. Petersburg, an attack that killed 26 people and injured scores.

    How many more lives will be lost in the name of terror? And for what? Because my religion doesn't fall in line with yours or because I am a Westerner?

    no no no, you've got it all wrong. Muslims are all about peace and love, they can't help it if they sometimes eat a bag of ball bearings and then explode in public places!

    on a serious note, the Russians won't pussy foot around, there will be much more bloodshed.

    Unfortunately it will get much worse than this. The fact that there has not been a large scale attack on American soil makes me think that they are studying hard for a massive attack someday. If you've read "The Sum of All Fears" by Tom Clancy,not watched that butchered POS movie, you'll understand what I am talking about.

    I feel the same way. It scares the shit out me!!

    When I am watching a sporting even like the Daytona 500 or super Bowl I often wonder when they will strike or attempt something at a event with that many people.

    Have the Muslims claimed responsibility or otherwise been found to be responsible? Aren't there other groups in former Soviet countries that have displayed terroristic tendencies?

    My have to say I'm picking my jaw up off the floor. It's not every day someone around here backs off on a statement like that. Usually someone fights tooth and nail not to admit fault and you sir have proven to be a braver person than that. People like you give that sliver of hope I still seek.

    Yeah, it seems to be the rule rather than the exception that these things are carried out by Muslim extremists. Just too bad that many look past the extremist part of that about 90% of the time.

    Default Russian security forces were tipped off a week ago.....

    Last Updated: 01:17 IST(25/1/2011)

    'We will track down, punish bombers'

    A suicide bomber killed at least 31 people at Russia's biggest airport, Moscow-Domodedovo, on Monday in an attack that bore the hallmarks of militants fighting for an Islamist state in the north Caucasus region.

    President Dmitry Medvedev vowed to track down and punish those behind the bombing, which also injured about 130 people during the busy late afternoon.

    The Kremlin said Medvedev, who has called the insurgency in the north Caucasus the biggest threat to Russia's security, was delaying a trip to the Davos international business forum in Switzerland. The rebels have vowed to take the bombing campaign to the Russian heartland, hitting transport and economic targets.

    "Security will be strengthened at large transport hubs," Medvedev wrote on Twitter. "We mourn the victims of the terrorist attack at the airport. The organisers will be tracked down and punished."

    Russia's rouble-denominated stock market MICEX fell by nearly two per cent following the blast, which ripped through the arrivals hall. Twitter users posted mobile video phone footage of dozens of people lying on the floor as thick smoke filled the hall and a fire burned along one wall.

    Warning sounded

    Russian security services had received warnings that an attack was planned at a Moscow airport.

    "The special services had received information that an act of terror would be carried out at one of the Moscow airports," a security source. "Agents were seeking three suspects but they managed to access the territory of the airport, witness the explosion which their accomplice carried out and then leave the airport," the source said.

    "A tip-off with a warning that something was being prepared appeared one week before the explosion," an airport security source told the Lifenews.ru website. "Even the place, by the customs, was named."
