Istanbul (dpa) - The attacks started at 9:22 pm (1822 GMT), Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said, adding that the assailants arrived at the airport in a regular yellow taxi.
Turkish police block the entrance after an suicide bomb attack at Ataturk Airport in Istanbul, Turkey, 28 June 2016.

The justice minister, Bekir Bozdag, confirmed at least one of the attackers had an assault rifle, which was used in the attack. It appeared to be a well coordinated mission.

There was an exchange of gunfire between the attackers and the police near a security checkpoint by the arrivals terminal at the international section of the airport.

One of the attackers then detonated explosives inside the terminal next to the entrance to the building by a security check, while another blew himself up outside the terminal and the third in a parking area, Turkish officials said.

Videos posted to social media, which cannot be confirmed, showed an attacker inside the airport building and panic among passengers. Eye witnesses also reported explosions and gunshots in several areas, saying the attacks appeared to be on two separate floors.
Turkish special forces members secure the area.

All three attackers were killed during the incident, which caused massive flight disruptions. The airport was shut for a number of hours and has only partially reopened, with many cancellations. Some flights are being rerouted through other airports.

Ataturk airport is a major international transit hub, handling some 60 million passengers a year, making it one of the busiest in the region.

There are foreign nationals among the dead and injured, though the nationalities have not yet been revealed. The nationality of the attackers is not yet known.
