Airport Bombing In Moscow

A bomb has been detonated at the Domodedovo Airport in Moscow, killing at least ten people and wounding twenty others.  Domodedovo is the busiest of the Russian capital’s three airports.

Early suspicion has fallen on the “Caucasus Emirate,” an Islamist separatist movement in Chechnya, which has been held responsible for deploying two female suicide bombers against the Moscow Metro subway system in March 2010.  Those attacks claimed over 40 lives.  Chechen separatists supposedly trained a sizable group of “black widow” female bombers, and promised future terror attacks.

Initial reports from the Domodedovo Airport suggested the new attack was the work of a suicide bomber, but this has not been confirmed yet.
