Two female homicide bombers blew themselves up on Moscow's subway system as it was jam-packed with rush-hour passengers Monday, killing at least 38 people and wounding over 100.
WASHINGTON -- President Obama has condemned the rush hour bombings in the Moscow metro, offering his condolences to the Russian people.
In a statement issued by the White House early Monday, the president said the American people stand united with the people of Russia in opposition to violent extremism and "heinous" terrorist attacks.
The two blasts during the morning rush hour killed at least 37 people and wounded 102.
The head of Russia's main security agency said a preliminary investigation places the blame on rebels from the restive Caucasus region that includes Chechnya, where separatists have fought Russian forces since the mid-1990s.
