Footage from a security camera at Istanbul Airport. (updating) At least 28 people are dead and another 60 are injured after two explosions hit Ataturk airport in Istanbul on Tuesday night, according to Turkey’s Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag. The exact details regarding the explosions is still unclear, but reports indicate at least one attacker engaged in a firefight with police at a security checkpoint outside the airport’s international terminal before detonating his device. According to the New York Times, Turkish officials said both bombers were killed at that checkpoint; CNN is reporting that one suicide bomber set off an explosion just outside the terminal, while the other set his off at the general entrance to the airport. Yesterday, the U.S. State Department updated its travel warning regarding Turkey, stating in part that “the U.S. Department of State warns U.S. citizens of increased threats from terrorist groups throughout Turkey and to avoid travel to southeastern Turkey.” The Ataturk airport is in the southwest part of the country.
