MOSCOW - The Russian and US presidents have agreed by telephone to increase cooperation on counter-terrorism following the Boston Marathon bombings, the Kremlin said on Saturday.

The White House said President Barack Obama had thanked President Vladimir Putin for Russia's close cooperation on counter-terrorism after the bombing, which US officials suspect was carried out by two ethnic Chechens who once lived in Russia.

"President Putin expressed his condolences on behalf of the Russian people for the tragic loss of life in Boston," the White House said in a statement.
