At least 36 people lay dead and more than 147 were wounded after three suicide bombers struck at Istanbul’s international airport this evening.
A policeman had managed to wrestle one attacker to the ground before the terrorist detonated his device, said one report.
The attackers opened fire with Kalashnikov machine-guns before blowing themselves up in a similar attack to the one that devastated Brussels airport in March, said Turkish Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag.
He added that the number of casualties was likely to rise.
Six casualties were fighting for life.
Eyewitness Elita Baumane said: “People were running and screaming and panicking.”

I REALLY did not need to see that
For anyone who hasn't clicked on the link above, its really graphic.
But no point burying my head in the sand, although that was horrific , its todays reality. I cannot fathom out people running with suitcases in their hands though? Me, I would drop everything and run like fun. Bugger worrying about a few clothes when someone is shooting. Glad the bastard died though, shame it wasn't a bit slower.
