Istanbul, June 29 (IBNS) Months after Brussels airport witnessed a carnage carried out by militants, similar pictures were seen in Turkey as a busy airport in Istanbul became the newest target of the terrorists as three suicide bombers suspected to be Islamic State members killed 36 people and wounded nearly 230 late on Tuesday.

The attack took place in Turkey's  Ataturk airport.

Reports said there were screams as the terrorists fired and bombed in one of the busiest airports of the world and third busiest in Europe.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım confirming the toll at 36 has said militant group ISIS is suspected to be behind the attack.

The prime minister was quoted as saying that three attackers arrived in the airport on a taxi cab and also used guns during the attack.

He said the three men exploded themselves, adding "this attack, targeting innocent people is a vile, planned terrorist act." The terrorists opened fire in the departures hall too as people ran for cover. 

Faced with terrorism on its soil, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the attack should be seen as a turning point in the global fight against terrorism.

"The bombs that exploded in Istanbul today could have gone off at any airport in any city around the world," he said, quoted BBC.
