Dozens dead and hundreds injured as three attackers open fire on the Ataturk airport in Istanbul, Turkey.
They arrived by taxi – three attackers entered the Ataturk airport late Tuesday and opened fire. After confrontation with police, they detonated their suicide vests – blasting apart the terminal, killing dozens and injuring hundreds.
