A suicide bomber killed at least 31 people and injured more than 130 on Monday at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport, Russia’s biggest.
President Dmitry Medvedev vowed to track down and punish those behind the attack, which analysts said appeared to fit a pattern of bombings by Islamist militants fighting to create an independent “emirate” in Russia’s north Caucasus region.
“The explosion was right near me, I was not hit but I felt the shock wave — people were falling,” said Yekaterina Alexandrova, a translator who was waiting in the crowded arrivals area to meet a client flying in from abroad.
