United States President Barrack Obama pledged on Tuesday to help Russia investigate the deadly terrorist attack on Moscow's Domodedovo Airport, the Kremlin said.

“The US president said he was ready to provide any assistance to punish those who committed this crime,” a Kremlin statement said following a phone conversation between Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.

Earlier in the day Interpol said it is ready to help Russia investigate Monday's terrorist attack at the airport, said the organisation's Secretary General Ronald Noble.

“Our bureau in Moscow and all relevant Russian law enforcement officials can count on Interpol's full support to bring those responsible to justice,” Noble said.
A powerful blast struck the busy international terminal of Russia's biggest airport on Monday evening, killing 35 people and injuring up to 180. A suicide bomber is believed to have detonated the bomb, which was equal to five kilogrammes of TNT.

“Interpol condemns this murderous attack in the strongest possible terms,” Noble added.

Since a number of foreigners were amongst the casualties of the attack, Interpol has also offered to deploy an Incident Response Team to Moscow to assist local police.

No group has yet taken responsibility for the attack and security in the country is on maximum alert.
