Russia's President Calls for Better Transportation Security

MOSCOW (AP) -- Russian President Dmitry Medvedev says all transport hubs need to implement full security checks following the deadly suicide bombing at Moscow's Airport that killed 35 people.
He's also calling for government officials to be held accountable for security lapses as finger-pointing began in the wake of the attack.
Medvedev says airport management must share responsibility for security failures. Airport management says transport police were in control.
The finger-pointing could serve to further undermine confidence in Russia's security as Medvedev prepares for an appearance at the high-profile World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, to try to attract investors.
No claims of responsibility have been issued, although Islamic militants in the southern Russian region of Chechnya have been blamed for previous deadly attacks in Moscow.
