Description

Terrorists detonated a bomb at Moscow's busiest airport on Monday, killing 35 people and wounding 152, Russian authorities said. President Dmitry Medvedev, who called the bombing a terrorist attack, ordered additional security at airports and transportation hubs around the country, and Moscow police went on high alert in case of additional bombs. However, airport spokeswoman Yelena Galanova told Russian state TV that the airport was "operating as usual." "There have been no departure delays. We were shut for only about 20 minutes after the explosion," she told state TV. An airport employee, Andrei Surkov, told CNN that while the international arrivals area is still closed, international passengers were being routed through the domestic terminal located on the other end of the airport.
