Iran condemned on Tuesday the terrorist attack at a Moscow airport that killed 35 people and offered its condolences to the Russian government and people, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.

"Iran condemns the terrorist attacks and offers its condolences to the victims' families, to the nation and the Russian government," said foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast.

A female suicide bomber killed 35 at Moscow's Domodedovo airport. Suspicions immediately focused on an North Caucasus militant group that has claimed responsibility for similar attacks in the past.

The attack was sharply condemned by the international community.
