Domodedovo Toll Rises

A victim of the Moscow airport suicide bombing has died in a hospital, taking the death toll to 36, the Health and Social Development Ministry said Wednesday.

The Jan. 24 attack in the international arrivals hall of Domodedovo Airport also wounded about 180 people, 114 of whom remain hospitalized, according to  ministry figures.

Investigators said the suicide bomber was a 20-year-old man from the volatile Caucasus region in the south, suggesting that Islamist terrorist cells known to operate there planned the attack.

There has been no claim of responsibility. Citizens of Britain, Germany, Austria and Ukraine were among those killed in the bombing, which authorities said deliberately targeted foreigners.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
