AP gives location as:

"There was no immediate word on the cause of the explosion in the international baggage-claim area at Domodedovo airport."

Russian news now reporting 20+ dead.

Maybe not in baggage reclaim, but in meet and greet area.

Reporting suicide bomber

I regularly go through DME international arrivals. baggage reclaim no larger than 300 sqm with 5 or 6 belts and always packed full mid afternoon on a Monday. This is peak time. Expect the numbers to rise...

Blast in non-sterile arrival area, near cafe Asia. 35 confirmed dead, more than 120 injured, some 20 seriously.

Now reported about 7-10 kg in TNT equivalent packed "full of metal pieces".

Unhappy

That would make sense as many airports let you get pretty close to the doors where pax come out without stringent security. Far easier than getting air-side in the terminal but same effect if you choose a busy time. The world is turning to with all these crazies around the world

I flew in to Vladivostok from Beijing today. There were THREE search dogs in the very small single belt baggage reclaim area and one outside at the meet and greet.

I thought that there was a crackdown on drug smugglers underway, now I have to ask if the FSB had some non specific intelligence going on somewhere......

yes looks very bad on the youtube clip, bbc have just had a phone interview from a passenger on board BA872 which landed at 1546, he said he was at the front of the cabin and was one of the first off, he had just reached the car park when he heard the blast and he said he was extremely surprised if no one on the flight was affected by the incident. European airline flights which landed in the same time frame were : LH from Hamburg at 1542, OS from Vienna at 1517, AB from Dusseldorf at 1552

Thanks for that Kulverstukas...

I'm watching the news on "1" channel (my wife is Russian) and this wasn't mentioned. Good info.

Moscow Bombs

Two Britons are among 35 people believed to have been killed along with 170 injured in an explosion caused by a dual suicide attack at Moscow's main commercial airport.
The Foreign Office was this evening frantically trying to confirm the news on the British deaths, as reported by Russian agency Interfax, who earlier said the explosion was caused by a bomb with 7kg of TNT and police searching for three male suspects.
'We are investigating the situation, have people on the ground there,' a spokesman told the Daily Mail online. 'We are speaking to our Russian colleagues in an attempt to confirm the reports.'
Russia's top investigative agency said the blast happened at 4.30pm local time in the arrivals hall of Domodedovo Airport, the busiest of capital's three airports, which is 26 miles outside Moscow.

When UK airports shut the stable doors after the horses had bolted and stopped vehicles getting close to terminals I always wondered what would stop suicide bombers detonating suitcases full of explosives in a crowded check-in area. Let's face it, it's not suspicious carrying a suitcase into an airport departures area - and in the UK there's no security prior to entering a terminal. It doesn't stop me travelling but I do think about it. This incident has highlighted my concerns.

Go on, HT, give 'em all the clues to do a better job....
Sometimes the urge to put your name on a posting is done without thinking through the potential consequences....
Zip it and think, next time, please...
