I’ve just published a foreign policy-related post at Outside the Beltway:

Death Toll in Moscow Domodedovo Terrorist Attack Rises to 35

To summarize: Russian language news sources are reporting that the death toll at Moscow’s busiest airport as a result of what is being described as “clearly a terror attack” has risen to at least 35, more than 40 people are in critical condition, and scores more have been injured.

Details are slowly emerging. The suicide attacker has been identified as a man, his last words were reportedly “I’ll kill all of you!”, and he was travelling to the Northern Caucasus, substantiation of the speculation that he was Chechen.

RF President Medvedev has cancelled (or at least postponed) his trip to the Davos economic forum, there are reports that Russia’s intelligence service had advance warning of the attack, and as of this point nobody has claimed responsibility for the attack.
