At Least 31 Killed at Moscow Airport

At least 31 people have been killed, and many more wounded, in an apparent terrorist attack at Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport. While I haven’t seen any hard information, the attack is presumed to be the work of Islamic extremists, likely Chechens. This cell phone video was shot just moments after the bomb went off and gives some idea of the number of victims. The bomb, perhaps detonated by a suicide bomber, went off in the international arrivals area:

UPDATE: This account has more information, including this:

Police are searching for three suspects in connection with the blast after watching airport security camera footage.

FURTHER UPDATE: Russian police say they think the explosion was caused by a suicide bomber. No explanation yet of how that relates to the three individuals mentioned in the earlier update.
