RUSSIA: Suicide Bomber Kills Dozens, Injures Over 100 At Moscow Airport

A reported suicide bombing at Moscow's Domodedovo airport today has killed dozens and left more than 100 injured.
Russian news agencies, citing witnesses, said airport halls were filled with smoke, so much so that it was difficult to count the number of dead. International arrivals were being diverted to nearby, according to local media reports. The explosion occurred at 4:32 p.m. local time, according to RT television. The airport, southeast of the capital, is Russia’s largest hub for international travelers, with more than 20 million passengers passing through last year.
CNN is currently reporting the death toll at 31. The bomb is said to have gone off in the international arrivals baggage claim area, which is unsecured.
