MOSCOW — Russia's Emergencies Ministry on Tuesday said eight foreign citizens, including two Britons, were among the 35 people killed in a suicide bombing at Moscow's busiest airport a day earlier.

A preliminary casualty list published by the ministry showed a German and a Bulgarian among the dead, along with one person each from the former Soviet republics of Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Ukraine.

No claim of responsibility has been made for the Monday afternoon blast at Domodedovo Airport, which wounded 110 other people. But suspicion was likely to fall on Chechen militants, who have claimed many other terrorist acts in Russia, including last year's double suicide bombing of the Moscow subway system that killed 40.
