'Chaos and panic' at Moscow airport: journalist


Chaos and panic. That’s how one correspondent described the aftermath of the bomb attack at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport.

euronews’ Nial O’Reilly spoke to Russia Today’s Oksana Boyko to get a sense of the mood in Moscow.

Boyko said “there were chaotic scenes at the airport just after the attack.”

“Witnesses say it was almost impossible to count the number of dead because of the amount of smoke. Domodedovo is the biggest and busiest airport, not only in Moscow but in Russia as well. The explosion happened at around 16:30 when the airport was extremely busy.”

“Each day there are large numbers of flights arriving at this time. The people felt totally desperate and panic ensued because nobody could understand what was going on. They did not know what to do.”
