German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday sent condolences over the two metro blasts that killed dozens of people in Moscow.

"It is shocking that such attacks were possible in the middle of Moscow," said Merkel in a message to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.

Merkel expressed Germany's sympathy to the families of the victims.

Merkel also urged thorough and swift investigations on the "terrible" attacks.

Two female suicide bombers blew themselves up at two subway stations in central Moscow during Monday's morning rush hour, claiming at least 37 lives and injuring some 100 others. The blasts were the deadliest in the Russian capital in six years.
