MOSCOW (AP) -- Russian authorities say 31 people are dead and about 130 wounded after an explosion ripped through the arrivals hall at Moscow's busiest airport.
The state news agency, RIA Novosti, says the explosion at Domodedovo airport may have been caused by a suicide bomber.
The airport is generally regarded as Moscow's most up-to-date, but its security procedures have been called into question.
In 2004, two suicide bombers were able to board planes at the airport by buying tickets illegally from airport personnel. The bombers blew themselves up in midair, killing all 90 people aboard the two flights.
Last March, 39 people were killed and more than 60 wounded in a pair of suicide bombings in Moscow's subway.
And in December 2009, Chechen rebels claimed responsibility for blowing up a high-speed train between Moscow and St. Petersburg.
That attack that killed 26 people and injured scores.
