Security Services Aware Of Terrorists Attack On Moscow Airpor In Advance

Posted by Info on 25/01/2011

A law enforcement source said that the security services were aware that terrorists were planning an attack on a Moscow airport, but were unable to locate and detain the three suspects they had been searching for.

A spokesman for Russia’s national anti-terrorism committee (NAC) said earlier on Tuesday that insufficient security measures in Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport are to blame for Monday’s deadly blast.
The source said that security and police at the arrival hall of the airport did not pay enough attention at unauthorized persons and strangers in the area. The work of police and security at Domodedovo International Airport will be checked.

Two terrorists were involved in a suicide bomb attack at Moscow’s Domodedovo International Airport that killed 35 and injured up to 180.
“The blast occurred when a suspected female terrorist opened a bag. She was accompanied by a man whose head was ripped off by the explosion. It cannot be ruled out that the terrorists wanted to leave the explosive device in the hall but the bomb was detonated inadvertently or by a remote control device,” the source saide said.

At least six foreigners have been identified among the 35 confirmed dead.
Two British citizens, one German and three central Asians from Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan were among those killed when a suicide bomber blew up the arrivals area of Russia’s busiest airport at 4:30 on Monday afternoon.
A further eight foreigners remained in hospital on Tuesday morning, with 87 people in total still undergoing treatment.
