Developing: Dozens Dead After Explosions At Istanbul Airport

Dozens are dead after explosions rocked an airport in Istanbul.

Investigators say they caught what appears to be a suicide bomber detonating an explosive device inside Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport Tuesday evening.

Istanbul’s governor says three suspected terrorists killed themselves in the attack at the international terminal.

Many believe ISIS is behind the explosions, but so for no terror group has claimed responsibility.

Secretary of State John Kerry says attacks like these are a sign the terror group is getting weaker.

Turkish Prime Minister, Binali Yildirim says the attackers arrived at the airport by taxi.

At least 41 people were killed, not including the three suicide bombers, and more than 230 others were injured in the blasts.

Turkey has been the target of several bombings in the past few months linked to Kurdish or Islamic State group militants.

Flights at the airport have resumed.
