 The El Kadsre City International Airport bombing (エル・カサレ国際空港爆撃 Eru Kasare Kokusai Kūkō Bakugeki?) was a suicide bombing that took place in the international arrivals area of the El Kadsre City International Airport on January 24, 2001. The attack killed 46 and wounded 73, the Ministry of Culture identified the attacker as a 20-year-old from the Gyönyörű Földünk militant group from Sentan, and the attacker intended to hit foreigners.

Background

El Kadsre City International Airport is the largest and busiest airport in El Kadsre, with more than 10 million passing through in 2000. In 1995, two flights were bombed by two female militants from Gyonyoru Foldunk, leading to an extensive step-up in security at the airport, including full-body scanners.

El Kadsre faced a number of incidents caused by Foldunk, including 13 being killed at an El Kadsre City BI-LO supermarket in 1996, and in May 2000, over 40 people were killed in twin suicide bombings on the El Kadsre City Metro.

Bombing

The attack took place at the baggage claim area of the international arrivals area of the airport, according to the El Kadsreian Ministry of Culture, the bomber was apparently holding more than five kilograms (approximately ten pounds) of TNT which he made himself. The moment before detonating, the attacker shouted in Japanese, "I will kill you all!" The attack was later confirmed to be an act of revenge for recent anti-militant operations in Sentan, for which the leader of the cell the attacker participated in was killed.

Aftermath

A number of flights that were bound for the airport had to be redirected to other airports in El Kadsre. The surge of emergency vehicles rushing to the airport led to traffic delays, and costs of taxi drives and El Kadsre City Metro tickets were temporarily cut in half in order to compensate for the attacks.

Responsibility

Within hours of the attack, Gyönyörű Földünk issued a statement of responsibility, claiming they were behind the attack. They also released a propaganda video that threatened further attacks and lashed out at the El Kadsreian government that they would join arms with the Shintoist Province and Scarlet Devil of Team Crimson; he also taunted the government by calling them "satanic." He also taunted the United States and Japan for being "hypocrites", and also threatened attacks against the United States, Japan, Canada, and Minecraftia for oppressing Shintoists.
