    Russian police have arrested two suspects in connection with a suicide attack on Moscow's busiest airport last month, a lawmaker said on Tuesday, citing investigators.

    The blast in the international arrivals zone at Domodedovo Airport on January 24 killed 36 people and injured dozens more.

    "Two accomplices in the Domodedovo terrorist attack have been arrested," said Viktor Vasilyev, the head of the lower house's security committee. "One suicide bomber was killed."

    Several security and transport officials were sacked after President Dmitry Medvedev blamed the bombing on poor security.

    The names of the suspects will be made public in the near future, the lower house's security committee said earlier on Tuesday.
