Turkish officials say initial investigations point to Isis being behind a triple suicide bombing and gun attack on Istanbul’s Ataturk international airport which killed at least 41 people.

Another 239 people were injured, many seriously, after three gunmen armed with AK-47s opened fire on passengers. Officials say the death toll could rise to 50.

CCTV footage shared on social media showed two of the detonations, at least one of which came after police officers fired on and wounded an attacker. The third gunman was reported to have blown himself up in the car park outside.
