Disturbing raw footage has surfaced depicting the immediate aftermath of this morning's deadly bombing at Moscow's Domodedovo International Airport (via Dan Foster).
Russian authorities say early evidence indicates the explosion was, indeed, a terrorist act:
Russian state TV, citing Russian authorities, said the explosion was the act of a suicide bomber who stuffed a homemade bomb with small metal objects to make it more deadly, then activated it in a crowded area where many people were preparing for their flights. CNN could not independently verify those claims.
Chechen rebels, who many suspect carried out today's atrocity, have claimed responsibility for a series of terrorist attacks in recent years, including a Moscow subway bombing that killed dozens of civilians last March. According to a 2005 report from George Washington University, more than 93 percent of Chechnya's population is Muslim.
Responsibility for today's blast remains unclaimed for now.
UPDATE - How did the suicide bomber(s) breach airport security? It appears they didn't:
