VIDEO Moscow reacts after two female suicide bombers killed at least 35 people on the metro system. Duration: 00:33

"There were yells and shouts and those who could move pulled out themselves up and disappeared. Then I came back and a few of us picked the wounded onto baggage trolleys and took them to the airport's medical station. I took a man who had lost a leg and then a woman with injured legs. It was terrible," Zhilenkov told the British paper.

Russian authorities know that a man and a woman -- identified as a Black Widow -- exploded the bomb at the airport.

"The panic attack was carried out according to a method that is used by terrorists from the north Caucasus district. The explosions at the Rizhskaya subway station and other blasts in the Moscow metro were carried out likewise, when the terrorists were escorted by militants," a Russian official told The Guardian.

Russian authorities tell AFP that the detached head of the supposed suicide bomber was found and we saw the head of a man of Arab appearance, aged 30 to 35, a law enforcement administrator told AFP. Officials are also searching for three others who may be connected with the bombing.

There will be pay off for the bombing, vowing "retribution is inevitable." Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said:

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev teared into officials of the Moscow airport Tuesday, saying they must tolerate accountability for security failures there, but airport management challenge Russian transport police were in charge. The finger-pointing could additional undermine assurance in Russia's security as Medvedev prepares for an manifestation at the high-profile World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, to try to attract investors.

No claims of accountability for the blast have been issued, even though Islamic militants in the southern Russian district of Chechnya have been answerable for earlier attacks in Moscow, including a twice suicide bombing on the capital's subway system in March 2010 that resulted in 40 deaths. If Monday's attack was by Chechen insurgents, it could point out an ominous new policy because unlike previous attacks, it targeted an area where foreign citizens were likely to be victims.

Russia's pleasant appearance for investors already had been stunned in December when ex-oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky was sentenced to six more years in prison. Khodorkovsky has been jailed since 2003 in a case that critics say is political retribution for his support of opposition politicians.

"What happened shows that visibly there were violations in guaranteeing security. And it should be answered for by those who make decisions there and by the administration of the airport," he said in comments released by the Kremlin on Tuesday.
