Putin says airport bomb not linked to Chechnya

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that those behind a deadly suicide attack on Moscow's busiest airport were unlikely to have come from Chechnya.

"According to preliminary data, it has no relation to the Chechen Republic," Putin told reporters.

Putin, who launched a war against pro-independence Chechen fighters in 1999, refused to clarify his comment.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack which killed at least 35 people and injured more than 100.
