MOSCOW — A website affiliated with Chechen rebels released a video on Monday in which insurgent leader Doku Umarov claims responsibility for last month's deadly suicide bombing at Russia's largest airport.

The Kavkaz Center website says it received the video late Monday. It was not clear when or where the video was recorded.

The Jan. 24 attack at Moscow's Domodedovo Airport killed 36 people. Russian investigators say the bomber was a 20-year-old man from the Caucasus region that includes Chechnya, but have not released his name or other details.

"You see this special operation carried out by my order ... more special operations will be carried out in the future," Umarov says in the video, wearing a camouflage uniform and a skullcap.

According to the website, Umarov said "Muslims of the Caucasus were at war with the Russian occupation army in the name of Allah to defend Islam and the people's right to dignity, to liberate the land of Caucasus Muslims, and to establish law and justice."
