A dastardly attack at the main Airport in Istanbul has left atleast 41 dead and more than 230 injured. The attack, as per initial reports, was the handiwork of three suicide bombers who blew themselves up at the Airport. Investigators in Turkey have been going through the footage and recording witness statements after the blasts.
This has been one of the most ghastly suicide attacks in Turkey in recent times, already reeling under the effects of the Syrian war and the large scale influx of refugees.
Atleast 13 foreign nationals including, that from China, Jordan, Uzbekistan were reportedly amongst those killed in the attack.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has stated that the attack should serve as a turning point in the global fight against terrorism.
The attack brought back memories of the recent terrorist attack at the Brussels Airport which also left several dead.
