Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said Tuesday that the management of Moscow's Domodedovo airport should be held accountable for the apparent suicide bombing that killed 35 people, Interfax reported.

"What happened demonstrates that there were clear security breaches. Someone had to try very hard to carry or bring through such a vast amount of explosives," the news agency quoted Medvedev as saying.

"Everyone linked to the company that makes decisions there, and the management of the airport itself, has to answer for everything. This is an act of terror. This is grief. This is a tragedy."

Initial reports that Monday's blast had the force of between five and seven kilogrammes (11 and 15.4 pounds) of TNT.
