Russian investigators say they have identifed the suicide bomber who killed at least 35 people at Moscow’s main airport on Monday.

Yunus Bek Yevkurov, the head of Ingushetia’s mainly Muslim north Caucasus province, said the 20 year old man came from the region.

Officials have declined to release the 20-year-old man’s name as they are still investigating if he acted alone.

No group has claimed responsiblity for the attack but Russia says it bears the hallmarks of Islamist extremists from the Caucasus.
