      "We should never allow the terrorists to win," said UK Prime Minister David Cameron.
      UK Foreign Secretary William Hague: "I condemn the mindless act of terrorism that took place this afternoon at Moscow's Domodedovo airport. Such acts can have no justification and serve no purpose."
      Barack Obama anNicolasss Sarkozy expressed very much regret about this incident in the phone talk with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.
      Barack Obama called explosion "outrageous act of terrorism", reports Associated Press.

      An explosion happened in Moscow's Domodedovo airport, the busiest one in the Russian capital on the January, 24 at 16.32 MSK, killing 35 people at least . Some 170 people were injured in the blast, which reports suggest was the work of a suicide bomber. Some witnesses say it was a woman wearing hijab, others supposed it was a man of Arabic or Caucasian appearance, and that he shouted: "I'll kill you all!" before he had detonated the equivalent of 7kg (15lb) of TNT.
      Place for the crime was chosen perfectly. It happened in the international arrivals hall in a public area, to which people who are not passengers have free access, where where friends, relatives and drivers were waiting for passengers to come through customs.
      The hall filled with smoke, the panic began. But short after that functioning of the airport was back to normal. People were still checking in for flights. But security at the entrance was increased.
      Domodedovo airport was closed for 20 minutes, when injured and dead bodies were ferried from the scene to Moscow hospitals. Emergency workers had to use luggage trolleys - so many people were injured and dead. Now the airport is functioning nominally.
