The RIA Novosti (Russian) website reports that an explosive device detonated by a suicide bomber at Moscow's Domodedovo Airport today (January 24, 2011) killed 35 people, and wounded 130 more -- many of them in grave condition.
Law enforcement officials said the power of the blast was equal to 5kg of TNT and that the bomb was packed with metal objects to cause maximum damage.
The attack was claimed by Chechen military leader Doku Umarov, who warned that "war" was coming to Russia's streets. Chechnya is a Russian state populated mainly by Muslims, many of whom would like Chechnya to gain its independence from Russia.
This is not the first time Domodedovo Airport -- Moscow's busiest airport -- has been targeted by terrorists. Two planes which took off from this airport were blown up by female Chechen suicide bombers in August 2004, killing a total of 90 people.
