MOSCOW – The suicide bomber who killed 36 people at a Moscow airport visited his home village shortly before the attack and may have collected the bomb there, a report said on Thursday, citing investigators.

The bomber briefly returned to his home village on Jan 19, five days before blowing himself up in Domodedovo airport’s arrivals hall, the Kommersant business daily reported, citing investigators.

Officials have named the bomber as 20-year-old Magomed Yevloyev from the North Caucasus region of Ingushetia and announced they had also arrested his brother and sister on suspicion of helping him plot the suicide strike.
