Putin: 'Vengeance Inevitable'
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said Tuesday that his country would “inevitably” take vengeance on the perpetrators of the terrorist bombing that killed 35 at Moscow's international airport a day earlier. At least 180 people were injured in the blast. No one has taken credit for it yet, but Russian authorities suspect Islamist radicals from Chechnya or the Caucasus. Chechen insurgents have claimed responsibility for previous terror attacks in Russia.
Russian officials said that the dead included 16 Russians, as well as one person each from Britain, Germany, Austria, Ukraine, Tajikistan. Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. Twelve people have not yet been identified.
