FEATURING KANI XULAM – Forty-one people are estimated to have been killed in a major suicide bombing of Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport on Tuesday. The attack in Turkey’s capital left nearly 150 people injured. News reports are claming that there were three perpetrators, two inside the airport and one in the parking lot, all wearing suicide vests. There were also reports of gunfire.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan wasted no time in declaring that Turkey will respond harshly to the attack. As of this recording it is unclear who is responsible for the suicide bombings but many are predictably speculating a connection with the Islamic State.
