Russian police released photographs Tuesday of two women suspected of being the suicide bombers who killed at least 39 people on the Moscow metro a day earlier.
Special services are also seeking three suspected accomplices of the bombers, Russian state TV reported, citing Moscow police spokesman Viktor Biryukov.

They are hunting for a 30-year-old man from the Northern Caucasus who was seen on security cameras wearing dark clothes and a black baseball cap, and two women, aged 22 and 45, both ethnic Slavs, who allegedly assisted the man, state TV reported.

Investigators believe that the three suspects accompanied the suicide bombers when they entered the metro, the report said.

They also believe Chechen rebels may have been behind the deadly strike, although nobody has claimed responsibility.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said Moscow would “restore order by the use of force” in the region, as part of its “quest to eliminate terrorists and bandits” there.

But it was harder to root out corruption and clan structures, and to build an education system, he said in remarks televised by Russian state TV from his country residence.
“Those are the things that are much more difficult to handle. But it is our task and we will be dealing with those issues no matter what,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Russian-backed leader of Chechnya wrote in a newspaper article Tuesday that terrorists who target innocent civilians must be “poisoned like rats.”

“We have always believed and we continue to believe that terrorists must be hunted down and found in their lairs, they must be poisoned like rats, they must be crushed and
destroyed,” Ramzan Kadyrov wrote in the Russian daily Izvestia, a day after the deadly rush-hour attacks in two Moscow subway stations.
