Turkey’s Prime Minister Binali Yildirim says early reports indicate ISIS is behind the three suicide bombers who attacked Istanbul Ataturk Airport.
Surveillance cameras at Istanbul’s Ataturk International Airport captured the terrifying moment explosions ripped through the terminal Tuesday night, killing and injuring dozens.
In this video posted to Twitter, scores of travelers can be seen running, seconds before one of the blasts goes off:

Three suicide bombers detonated explosives at the airport late Tuesday, authorities said. Police shot at the attackers outside the security gate of the international terminal, a senior Turkish official told The WorldPost.
Ataturk, Turkey’s largest airport, is the main international airport serving Istanbul. All flights were suspended
The attack escalates an already tense period in Turkey, which has faced other terror attacks in recent months.
