Turkey Rounds Up Suspects in Instanbul Airport Attack

Hosted by

Turkish police have conducted raids and detained more than 22 people in connection with Tuesday’s suicide attack at Istanbul’s main airport, which killed at least 43 people, and injured hundreds more. Turkish officials said today the 3 attackers were citizens of Russia, Uzbekistan and Krygistan who entered Turkey from the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa in Syria. This bolsters Turkish claims that the Islamic State­­ and not lone wolves ­­planned the assault.
