From CNN:

Terrorists detonated a bomb at Moscow's busiest airport on Monday, killing 35 people and wounding another 152, Russian authorities said.

President Dmitry Medvedev, who called the bombing a terrorist attack, ordered additional security at Moscow's other airports and transportation hubs, and Moscow police went on high alert in case of additional bombs.

The explosion occurred about 4:30 p.m. at the entrance of the international arrivals section of Domodedovo Airport, Itar-Tass said, citing a spokeswoman for the Russian Investigative Committee, Tatyana Morozova.


9:30 a.m. EST

The BBC, CNN and numerous other sources are reporting that a bomb has exploded at Moscow's Domodedovo airport, the busiest in the nation. Reports on casualties are conflicting: the BBC says that 10 are dead (although their Twitter feed has been updated to say 23 dead and 100 injured), while CNN is reporting that only two people have been killed and 20 injured.

According to CNN, the explosion occurred at the baggage claim area of the airport, which is 25 miles from Moscow's city center.

Stay tuned to for updates about the disaster.
