A Briton and other foreigners were among the 35 people killed in Monday's Moscow airport bombing, the Interfax news agency quoted a security source as saying.

A spokesman for the British embassy said he could not confirm the report but was "urgently" checking the information.

According to reports, two flights -- one from British Airways and another from BMI -- had arrived at Domodedovo international airport shortly before the blast, which has been blamed on a suicide bomber.

Separately, the Ministry of Health and Social Development reported on its website that the list of those receiving hospital treatment included one man from Italy and another from France.

The Slovak embassy separately told the RIA Novosti news agency that the actress Zuzana Fialova was also injured in attack and was receiving treatment at a Moscow hospital.
