24th January 2011, Comments 0 comments

Italy's Foreign Minister condemned a suicide attack on a Moscow airport which left 35 people dead and over 100 wounded as "barbaric and unjustifiable."

Minister Franco Frattini stressed the Italian authorities were in "full solidarity" with the Russian government "in the fight against terrorism" in a statement released shortly after the attack.

There were scenes of carnage at Domodedovo airport in southern Moscow on Monday as corpses were stretchered out of the arrivals area after the blast, the latest deadly attack to hit the capital after the metro bombings in March.

Describing the attack as an act of terror, President Dmitry Medvedev chaired an emergency meeting of transport and security officials and ordered a special security regime across the country's main airports and railway stations.
