The blast at Domodedovo International Airport near Moscow is being investigated as an apparent terrorist attack. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev cancels his trip to the World Economic Forum in Switzerland. 

Medvedev also said that those responsible for the attack would be “tracked down and punished.”

All Moscow transportation services went on high alert following the attack. Israel canceled all flights to Moscow.

Israel’s Foreign Ministry said it was not sure whether any of the victims were Israeli.

In March 2010, two female Chechen suicide bombers blew themselves up in the metro system, killing 40. In 2004, two suicide bombers boarded separate planes at the same airport and blew themselves up in midair, killing all 90 people aboard the two flights.

Russia’s president says a deadly bombing at Moscow’s busiest airport today looks like “a terror attack.”

The explosion tore through the international arrivals hall at Domodedovo (DOH’-muh-DYED’-uh-vuh) Airport, killing more than 30 people and wounding about 130.
