King Abdullah II of Jordan on Monday condemned the suicide bombing at Moscow's Domodedovo airport that killed 35 people and wounded dozens more, calling it a "terrorist act."

In a message to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, the king condemned "a terrorist act that cost the lives of innocent victims," a royal palace statement said.

Abdullah "expressed to President Medvedev his condolences to the relatives of the victims and his solidarity with the people of Russia," it added.

The suicide bomber blew himself up in the packed arrivals hall of Moscow's largest airport in an attack slammed by the Kremlin as an act of terror.
