Breaking - Terrorism at Moscow Airport: 31 dead, 130 injured

'31 dead' in suicide bomb attack on Moscow airport
31 people were killed and over 130 injured in a suicide bomb blast at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport on Monday, the Interfax news agency reported.

2:44PM GMT 24 Jan 2011

A spokeswoman for the investigative committee of the federal prosecutor’s office put the number of casualties at 31, citing preliminary information, and described it as an "act of terror".

"Today at 4:32 pm (1332 GMT) an explosion went off in the international arrivals hall of Domodedovo airport," the Russian investigative committee said in a statement.

Local media reported the blast may have hit the baggage reclaim area of the international arrivals hall.

The airport, which is Moscow's busiest, is around 25 miles south-east of the city centre.

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

makes me go hmm

I want to point out some things:

1) Medvedev was in Palestine and Jordan and called for INDEPENDENT PALESTINE with capital in Eastern Jerusalem.

2) Medvedev refused to fly to Davos Economic Summit tomorrow, where he would have been a main speaker.

3) Yesterday Russia officially became a 2018 World Cup host.

4) USA and UK during decades arming and financing a terrorist network in N.Caucusus to divide and conquer Russia by terrorist acts and proxy wars (Georgia 2008), etc.

5) Russia is blocking war against Iran.

so basically

more war behind the scenes. It would still be blamed on terrorist, but nobody wants to admit that "terrorist" are actually the governments of this world.

exactly

and we the people pay the price for all this crap.

If only they had tighter

If only they had tighter screening. Maybe make more people wait in line for the scanners.

Oh wait, this was at the arrival gate.

For the safety of everyone, why do we not have scanners at the doorsteps of every single residence as they leave their houses? How many more people have to die?

Columbus, Ohio

That's not enough

We could make everyone wear collars, that would transmit all actions to a central authority, and if the individual did something suspicious, the authority would press a button that would cause a small explosive device in the collar to detonate.

Isn't Moscow Airport where

Isn't Moscow Airport where the bomb dogs are employed? If so there goes our alternative to those TSA deathray machines.

You're right about the bomb sniffing dogs in Russia.

I wonder if they were recently pulled-off duty by the Russian equivalent of Dick Cheney, or someone gave them some vodka today.

In Russia, scientists have crossed jackals with a type of Russian husky to create what they claim is a superior bomb detection dog. After 30 years of selective breeding, the little dogs have now started duty at a Russian airport, with promising results.

The police began reinforcing the area around Kiev Station from the early afternoon, ringing it with personnel carriers and two armored combat vehicles. A shopping mall shut down at 6 p.m., and a bomb threat cleared out a nearby McDonald’s, as sappers roamed the premises with bomb-sniffing dogs.

Russia

The works of Putin perhaps?

Any journalist die? ;)

When will Putin be indicted for war crimes?

donvino

"When will Putin be indicted for war crimes?"

A) At the same time Busch uno and dos, Cheney, and Henry Kissinger are indicted for the same charges.

B) About the time you see Elvis and Tupoc herding flying pigs across the sky while dropping a rainbow of flavored skittles out of their little silver lined asses.

C) Never

I'm going with C

I can't believe I'm saying this

but I'll wait for the Russian's account of the story.

They are just like us: Problem, Reaction, Solution.....

without the part called "Explanation." Think Oklahoma City, 9/11, Anthrax, and WMDs.

I can only assume

this is the result of the pure hatred of the beautiful Freedom that Russians enjoy.

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy
