At least 36 people have been killed and over 140 more injured in two blasts that rocked Istanbul’s Ataturk airport, according to Turkish officials. The explosions were reportedly suicide bomb attacks.

The blasts occurred in the airport’s international arrivals terminal. Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim confirmed to the media that the death toll from the attacks has risen to 36, adding that foreigners could be among the victims.

He also stated that the attackers arrived at the airport by taxi.

According to some Turkish media, the blasts targeted two separate locations in the airport.

The attacks on the airport involved three suicide bombers, according to Yildirim. Initial findings revealed that all three opened fire before detonating their explosive devices.

More than 140 people have been injured in explosions at Ataturk Airport in Istanbul, local officials said.

Islamic State might have been behind the attack, a police source told Dogan news agency. However, the Turkish authorities have not yet confirmed the claim, saying it is too early to draw conclusions, a Turkish official told Reuters.

The deadly blasts coincide with the second anniversary of the declaration of the so-called Caliphate by the terror group.

Many people caught in the blasts and near the airport posted photos and videos from the scene, showing the destruction caused by the explosions as well as people hiding in various places in search of safety.

Gunfire was heard from the car park near the airport, CNN Turk reported, citing witnesses. Four armed men were reportedly seen running away from the terminal building after the explosions, according to Turkey’s NTV channel.

Turkish MP Eren Erdem confirmed on his Twitter feed that the blasts were suicide bomb attacks and that a large number of people were injured.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan made a statement strongly condemning the attack.

Earlier, Reuters reported that two suicide bombers blew themselves up in the airport by detonating explosives just before the security checkpoint at the international terminal.

According to eyewitness accounts cited by Reuters, one of the assailants “randomly opened fire” in the terminal prior to the blasts. Another witness said the initial two explosions were followed by a third one preceded by shooting, according to Reuters.
