Moscow bombing 'solved'
Moscow - Russian investigators have solved this week's Moscow
airport bombing that killed 35 people, news agencies quoted an
Investigative Committee official as saying Saturday.
"The act of terrorism at Domodedovo has been solved,"
two Russian news agencies quoted Investigative Committee spokesman
Vladimir Markin as saying.
The official provided no other details but said further information would be disclosed shortly.
The Interfax news agency separately cited a security
source as saying that police were already hunting for several prime
"Several people are suspected of organising and
carrying out the terror attack on Domodedovo," the unnamed security
"We are working on their arrest," the source added.
Russian news reports said investigators were looking
for an ethnic Russian member of a North Caucasus militant group who
vanished last year.
Police sources said the man - Vitaly Razdobudko from
the Stavropol region just north of the Caucasus mountains - was
probably not the suicide bomber but the organiser of the attack.
The Kommersant business daily reported Saturday that
the suicide bomber was wearing a plastic explosives belt that was also
filled with nuts and bolts.
One source suggested that the bomb may have been set
off remotely or by mobile phone. But another newspaper said the bomb
appeared to be timed.
