31 dead, 130 hurt in suicide bomb at Moscow’s busiest airport


At least 31 people were killed and 130 wounded Monday in a suicide blast at Russia’s busiest airport, Domodedovo, Russian Health Ministry officials said.

Smoke wafted out of the baggage claim area and people were seen running out of the emergency exits at the airport, local media reported.

The Russkaya Sluzhba Novostei radio station cited a traveler, identified as
Viktor, as saying he heard the bang outside the airport, where he was waiting for a car.

“There was an explosion, a bang. Then I saw a policeman covered in fragments of flesh and all bloody. He was shouting ‘I’ve survived! I’ve survived!'”

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.

Russia’s rouble-dominated stock market MICEX fell by nearly 2 percent following the blast, which ripped through the baggage claim area of the airport at around 1330 GMT.

  1. While the media will blame a small percentage of Muslims for supporting and accomplishing the attack, the truth lies in the leadership of the OIC. Within Islam there are hundreds of millions of on-lookers who are afraid to stop the carnage, since their own lives are forfeit if they interfere with jihad.

    Islam rules by fear. We should never bow down to their threats.

    I empathize with the families of the victims. May they find solace in the fact that their loved ones may have had quick deaths.

    As for the rest of us, well, we must be vigilant and rid the world of the scourge of Islam once and for all.

    Muslims drew the line in the sand, literally, and said that they will own the world for their leaders (the OIC) and will accept nothing less than total submission.

    Its them or us.

    We must fight back with whatever we have, now. Tomorrow will be too late.
