Reports suggest Monday's blast at Domodedovo hit the international arrivals hall - which was packed as several international flights had just landed - creating a cloud of smoke. The device is thought to have contained the equivalent of 7kg (15lb) of TNT.|
"The explosion occurred in the international arrivals hall in a public area, to which people who are not passengers have free access," airport spokeswoman Yelena Galanova told Interfax news agency.
According to eyewitnesses quoted by Russian TV's Vesti news programme, before detonating the explosives the bomber shouted: "I'll kill you all!"
Briton Mark Green, who was on a British Airways flight that landed at the airport before the explosion, told BBC News there were thousands of people in the baggage collection area, baggage hall and queue for immigration at the time of the blast.
"We were walking out through the exit of the arrivals hall towards the car, and there was this almighty explosion, a huge bang... my colleague and I looked at each other and said 'Christ that sounds like a car bomb or something,' because the noise was, literally, it shook you," Mr Green told BBC News.
He described scenes of panic and how he gave a drink of water to a bloodied Russian man whose face was blackened with soot.
After the blast, the dead and wounded were moved around the area on luggage trolleys.
In the aftermath of the explosion, Mr Medvedev told Russian state television a commission of inquiry would be established "to conduct urgent on-the-spot investigations".
