Some agencies report only 2 deads. I am very curious who is behind this and how this will all play out on a media level.
Condolences to the families of the victimes

The Airport is closed now.
Found on Twitter:

According to Sky news

news.sky.com... 0?lpos=World_News_Top_Stories_Header_0&lid=ARTICLE_15909270_Russia%3A_Bomb_At_Moscows_Domodedovo_Airport_Kills_At_Least_10_People_And_Injures_More

"Russian news agencies cited unspecified sources as saying the blast occurred inside the airport's international arrivals hall"

so the bomb was at probably one of the busiest parts of the airport. how relevent it was the arrivals section is yet to be revealed

This is the news source that the BBC and most sites seem to have got their initial information from:

www.interfax.com...

At 17.03 the blast was reported by the RUSSIAN INVESTIGATIVE COMMITTEE TRANSPORT DEPARTMENT, and they announced that there were two dead and a dozen or so injured.

It's at 17.08 when the medical team shows up that they confirm at;east 10 are dead and a dozen or so injured...

The interfax site is being updated every few minutes via what look like tweets so it's good to follow if your watching this story.

...Sorry post after my last, but I've just seen this posted on the interfax:

17:23Russian stock market slide continues on news of airport blast

Does anyone think this may be related...or motivated, with US-China economic talks atm, an airport is an unfortunate choice that can affect a countries economy :/

I wonder how the Russian government will react if this found to be the work of terrorists? With all the criticism that the US recieves from abroad. I can't, for one second, believe they would react any differently than we would.

Hmmm? The explosion happened in the international arrivals part of the airport. If the official story finds out that it is not linked to terrorism, then we can all assume that there is a massive cover-up with-in the Russian government.

Thats interesting, if the USA can react in such a manner and basically start the Iraq war. I wonder what Russia has the power to do and who it aims it at.

Will be interesting times. Thoughts go to the innocent victims.




"..suggested a suicide bomber was responsible."

Sky's intial reaction.




According to reports the explosion happened at 4:30pm in the luggage claim area in the international arrivals wing of the airport. The explosion power was equivalent to 5 to 10 kilograms of TNT.

I have been reading reports of a bomb set off in the baggage claim area of the airport. Over 20 people dead and over 100 more injured.

Could this be the work of Islam extremists?

German news tv "N-TV" is speculating about Chechnya beeing the source of the suicide bomber. They are also talking already about a general from there. Can't turn the volume up as i'm in a public place


And that it was 7kg (15.4 lbs) of someting that exploded there

Isn't there a video game with a similar scenario?

My son was telling me about one where a Russian? Airport is shot up by supposed terrorists, which are actually agents who are trying to do something covert?

He told me in this game, an undercover agent finds out at the last minute that he (the agent) will really have to help kill hundreds of people in order to not blow his cover with the group.

That's from Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2

Allen is later sent on an undercover mission in Russia for the CIA, joining Makarov in a massacre of civilians at the Zakhaev International Airport in Moscow. Makarov has been aware of Allen's identity and kills him during extraction, leaving his body to spark a war between Russia and the United States.[33] Angered by what was believed to be an American-supported terrorist attack, Russia retaliates with a massive surprise invasion on the United States after bypassing its early warning system, revealing that the ACS module MacTavish and Sanderson recovered had already been compromised before its retrieval. Sergeant Foley leads his squad of Army Rangers, including James Ramirez, in defense of a suburb in northeastern Virginia against the Russian invasion. They then proceed towards a war-torn Washington, D.C., where U.S. forces are fighting the Russians for control of the capital.
