    Turkey Airport BlastsUp to 50 people have died with dozens more injured in a gun and bomb attack on Turkey’s busiest airport.

    Witnesses reported hearing two explosions – followed by gunfire – at Ataturk Airport in Istanbul on Tuesday night.

    A senior Turkish official said initial signs are that ISIS was behind the atrocity.

    Two suicide bombers opened fire before blowing themselves up at the main entrance to the building, officials said.

    Police shot at them to try and stop them before they reached a security checkpoint at the arrivals hall. -UK Metro
