The Voice of Russia reported:

The baggage claim area of Moscow’s Domodedovo airport is shrouded in thick smoke and a smell of burning, and no exit is allowed out of the arrivals sector, a RIA Novosti journalist reports. Some victims have been reported.

People are being taken out through back doors, with a lot of passengers still crowding the building.

The Hindu say 20 people were killed in the suicide bombing.

UPDATE: RTE News just reported that over 30 people were killed and 130 were injured in the blast.

Russia’s ruble-dominated stock market MICEX fell by nearly two percent following the blast, which ripped through the baggage claim area at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport at 1332 GMT.

UPDATE: RTE is reporting 35 deaths. 39 people were killed in suicide subway attacks in 2010 in Moscow. In 2004, two suicide bombers were able to board planes at Domodedovo by buying tickets illegally from airport personnel. The female bombers blew themselves up in mid-air, killing all 90 people aboard the two flights.
