Security forces are searching for an ethnic Russian member of a North Caucasus group suspected of involvement in the Moscow airport bombing, a leading daily reported on Thursday.

No group has claimed responsibility for the bombing, which killed 35, left some 130 injured.

The daily Kommersant, citing unnamed security sources, said the wanted man was named Razdobudko and a resident of the North Caucasus province of Stavropol, which borders on provinces inhabited by mostly Muslim non-Russian ethnic minorities.

It said Razdobudko was believed to be a member of the Nogai Jamaat, an insurgent group based in Dagestan, a Russia-held Muslim province.

State-run RIA news agency cited an unidentified law enforcement official as saying Razdobudko was one of nearly 10 people wanted in connection with the attack.

The suicide attacker who detonated the bomb in the airport was a native of that region", RIA quoted the official as saying.

A picture of the alleged suicide bomber has been distributed to police stations across Russia, Interfax news agency quoted a law enforcement official as saying on Thursday.
