World Watch: Moscow massacre

* Russia: Authorities claimed that a suicide bomber was behind a "terrorist attack" at Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport that killed at least 35 people on Monday.

* Tunisia: The country’s interim government could enact major cabinet changes in response to demonstrations against the previous regime under recently ousted President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.

* Sudan: Preliminary results showed that most voters in southern Sudan want their region to become an independent country.

* Indonesia: Human rights groups are upset with what they believe is a lenient punishment against three Indonesian soldiers convicted of abusing a group of Papuan villagers.
