President Trump called Russian President Vladimir Putin Monday night to condemn the terrorist attack in St. Petersburg that left 14 dead and more than 50 injured. From the White House readout:

"President Trump expressed his deepest condolences to the victims and their loved ones, and to the Russian people. President Trump offered the full support of the United States Government in responding to the attack and bringing those responsible to justice. Both President Trump and President Putin agreed that terrorism must be decisively and quickly defeated."

New details: Akbarzhon Dzhalilov, a native of Kyrgyzstan who had Russian citizenship, is believed to be responsible for the attack in the city's subway system. Kyrgyz authorities said in a statement Tuesday that officials are cooperating with Russian security services. Russian investigators also said they believe the suspect was a suicide bomber.
