By  | 

Three ISIS suicide bombers have left dozens dead and wounded more than 140 in an attack at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport, opening fire with AK-47s and sparking a shoot-out with security personnel before blowing themselves up at the entrance to the international arrivals terminal.

A total of 36 people have tonight been confirmed dead, but Turkish officials said that number is expected to rise to 50 by morning.

Eyewitnesses described seeing a hero policeman shoot down one of the attackers just moments before the man detonated his explosives, giving terrified passengers a chance to escape and saving countless lives.
