A deadly explosion rattled Russia's busiest airport on Monday, killing at least 31 people and injuring another 130, according to the country's Health Ministry.

"From the preliminary information we have, it was a terror attack," Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said of the bombing at Moscow's Domodedovo Airport, the Associated Press reported.

The bombing hit the international arrivals hall shortly after 4:30 p.m. local time. Video posted shortly after the blast on YouTube showed a smoke-filled terminal with bodies and luggage strewn about the floor of the airport.

Separate video posted on the video-sharing service TwitVid showed victims of the blast being evacuated from the terminal by emergency responders. The videos were posted by a user named Stanislav Grigoryev.
