"A suicide bomber killed at least 35 people at Russia's busiest airport on Monday, state TV said, in an attack on the capital 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 over 150 people, during the busy late afternoon at Moscow's Domodedovo airport. The dead included some foreigners.

Islamist rebels have vowed to take their bombing campaign from the North Caucasus to the Russian heartland in the year before presidential elections, hitting transport and economic targets. They have also leveled threats at the 2014 Winter Olympics, scheduled for the Black Sea resort town of Sochi, a region some militants consider "occupied."

Dense smoke filled Domodedovo's international arrivals hall and a fire burned along one wall.

"Taxi drivers lined up in the arrivals hall were blown up. Pieces of their bodies covered us and my left ear doesn't hear very well at all," Artyom Zhilenkov, 30, told Reuters as he pointed to pieces of human flesh on his coat.

Thick drops of blood were scattered across the snow-covered tarmac outside the arrivals hall, where Interfax news agency said traces of shrapnel were found.

Two Britons were among the dead, media cited investigative committee spokesman Vladimir Markin as saying, and French, Italians, and Germans were in hospitals, though this could not be immediately confirmed with their embassies. Planes from across Europe had landed in the half hour leading up to the attack.

"I heard a loud boom... we thought someone had just dropped something. But then I saw casualties being carried away," a check-in attendant who gave her name as Elena told Reuters at Domodedovo, which is some 22 km (14 miles) southeast of Moscow.

The prosecutor's office said the bomb had been classified as a terrorist attack -- the largest since twin suicide bombings on the Moscow metro rocked the Russian heartland in March.

"The blast was most likely carried out by a suicide bomber."

State television said the blast was the work of a "smertnik," or suicide bomber. State-run RIA, quoting Markin, said the bomber most likely had a belt laden with explosives.

U.S. President Barack Obama condemned the "outrageous act of terrorism" and offered Moscow help. NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said he was shocked, state TV said."

Most likely a suicide bomber they say?

It just goes to show no place is immune to terrorism, and its the people who having nothing to do with anything, that are always the victims. What on earth did all these travelers have to do with any possible political message the terrorists are sending? Yet the progressives still say its fear mongering.

Hi batgirl, yeah I was just looking up some of the information
on some of the victims, looks like out of the 35 killed, 6 were foreigners,
and I believe another 100 something were wounded.

Looks like they have not identified any source, any person
or suspect yet.

"In comments carried on Russian television on Wednesday, Mr Medvedev said: "All the officials responsible for organising the process must be brought to their senses."

The dismissals are said to include regional transport chief Andrei Alexeyev, and Moscow police deputy head Maj Gen Vladimir Chugunov.

According to Russian media, Mr Alexeyev had been in the post in the interior ministry only since last year.

The Russian president said that everyone he had spoken to had complained that in the immediate aftermath of "terrorist acts", transport security was stepped up but soon abandoned.

He accused police of adopting "an absolutely passive position", suggesting that "at best" they harassed migrants.

Mr Medvedev said security measures had to be implemented "every day... and not from time to time. Only then will there be an effect".

Further sackings could take place as an investigation by the prosecutor general has begun which aims to find out whether transport officials were guilty of criminal negligence.

Airport authorities have firmly denied any culpability."

One has to suspect whether or not this is the work of false-flag terrorism from the FSB. We now know that back in 1999 the FSB was caught with Russian authorities/federal police setting up bombs that blew up rows of apartment buildings which resulted in many deaths and after that, Putin rode on a wave to power as President of Russia. It also interesting to note that Russia has been in proxy-war with the Chechnyan rebels for quite some time. If anything, NATO-backed Chechnyan forces are probably behind this in order to further destabilize Russia.

Thanks for bringing some of that to my attention
as I had not known about those accusations
in the past in which could very well be true I'm sure.

Although I'd agree with you, considering the timing
of the bombing I'd imagine this was not some
internal operation, but more of an effort
to destabilize.

Are there really that many women suicide
bombers????
40 percent over there are women suicide
bombers. 😯
