41 Killed In Attack On Istanbul Airport

Istanbul Airport which is the third busiest airport in Europe is the scene of a bomb and gun attack that has killed 41 people and wounded 239.

The attack is the deadliest in a series of bomb attacks that have occurred in Turkey this year.

Citizens from China, Jordan, Tunisia, Uzbekistan, Iran and Ukraine are among the dead. Five Saudis and 2 Iraqis were also killed.

 

The attack started when one of the attackers started shooting in the departures hall. After that, he and 2 others blew themselves up in or around the arrivals hall.

Experts suspect Islamic State to be behind the attacks. They say this attack has marked resemblance to the Brussels attack a few months ago, which Islamic State carried out.
