The Russian National Anti-Terrorist Committee said 35 people were dead and 152 had been wounded in the explosion.
A heavy police presence remained outside the airport nearly four hours after the explosion, and more than 10 ambulances left the airport with lights flashing and sirens screeching.
Incoming flights scheduled to land at Domodedovo were being diverted to Moscow’s other airports, Sheremetyevo and Vnukovo, Russian TV said.
“There have been no departure delays. We were shut for only about 20 minutes after the explosion,” she told state TV.
Elina Bakhtina told state TV she was at the airport cafe she owns when the explosion occurred.
“The blast must have been very strong, because our cafe is about 100 meters from the arrivals area. When we heard the blast, glass just started falling from the ceiling,” she said.
U.S. President Barack Obama called the bombing a “premeditated attack against innocent civilians.”
State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said the U.S. government had no information that any Americans were injured.
British Foreign Secretary William Hague said British officials are “in urgent contact with Russian authorities to establish the facts and to provide consular support to any British nationals who may have been affected.”
NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen condemned the attack and urged greater cooperation in the fight against terrorism.
German, French, and Isreali leaders also condemned the attacks.
Will Geddes, terrorism expert and managing director of International Corporate Protection Group, called the bombing a “very significant terror strike.”
