Moscow, Jan 26 (IANS/RIA Novosti): The US has sent a New York Police Department (NYPD) officer to Moscow to collect information on the terrorist attack at the Russian capital's Domodedovo airport, where a powerful blast Monday evening killed 35 people.
Up to 180 people were injured when a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device in the arrival zone at the international terminal.
The CBS channel reported that the information gathered by the officer will go towards helping US law enforcement agencies prevent similar incidents.
The NYPD has developed a special programme for studying terrorist attacks abroad. The police officer who was sent to Moscow also works in Tel Aviv as part of the programme.
The officer was also in Moscow in March 2010, when two bombs were detonated during the morning rush hour at the Lubyanka and Park Kultury Metro stations, killing 40 people and injuring over 100.
