2 Plane Crews Blinded

Unknown attackers with laser pointers blinded crews of two Boeing-737 jets landing in Moscow's Domodedovo Airport, Interfax reported Tuesday.

The first plane was an S7 flight from Samara, targeted at 11 p.m. Monday. The next attack came 2 1/2 hours later and was aimed at a Transaero jet from London.

Both jets landed safely, Interfax said. Police were looking for the attackers in downtown Vorobyovy Gory, 40 kilometers from the airport.
