UN chief Ban Ki-moon was "appalled" by and has condemned the Moscow suicide bomb attack on Monday, a UN spokesman said.

"The secretary general is appalled by the deadly bombing today at Moscow's Domodedovo Airport which has reportedly killed dozens of people," said spokesman Farhan Haq.

"The secretary general condemns this deplorable and unjustifiable act of violence against innocents," he said.

Ban conveyed "deepest condolences" to families of the victims and "his solidarity" with the Russian government and people.

A suicide bomber killed at least 35 people and wounded dozens more when he blew himself up in arrival hall at Moscow's largest airport, authorities said.
