Turkey’s Ataturk International Airport was struck by a coordinated gun and bomb attack killing at least 36 people and injured more than 90 passengers. Three attackers opened fire near an entrance to the airport terminal and detonated their suicide vests after police returned fire at them.
Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said early signs suggested the Islamic State terror group was behind the attack.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the attack should serve as a turning point in the global fight against militant groups. “The bombs that exploded in Istanbul today could have gone off at any airport in any city around the world,” he said.
