Explosion at Moscow Domodedovo

A few hours ago, an explosion ripped through the baggage claim area of Moscow’s Domodedovo airport, killing 31 and injuring at least a hundred more. Initial reports suggest that it was the result of a suicide bomber, suspected to be associated with militants from the Caucasus region. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has increased security throughout the city of Moscow, and declared that the attackers would be tracked down.

As of yet, there is little solid information to go on. I will be keeping an eye on this situation throughout the day.

*Update* As of 1400 ET, the death toll has risen to 35, with up to 130 injured.
