Washington - US President Barack Obama on Monday condemned as "outrageous" a suicide attack on a Moscow airport which left 35 people dead and over 100 wounded.

"I strongly condemn this outrageous" act, the US leader said, quoted by White House spokesperson Robert Gibbs.

There were scenes of carnage at Domodedovo International Airport in southern Moscow on Monday as corpses were stretchered out of the arrivals area after the blast, the latest deadly attack to hit the capital after the metro bombings in March.

Describing the attack as an act of terror, President Dmitry Medvedev chaired an emergency meeting of transport and security officials and ordered a special security regime across the country's main airports and railway stations.
