Thanks for the concern and yeah we're all watching the news here right now but nothing is clear at the moment sad.gif

My guess is after the insident with Russia (fighter aircraft gunned down) tourism dropped down %92 here and this is a huge blow to the Turkish economy, yesterday our prime minister (the guy I hate) wrote an apollogy letter to Russia and there was a hope this would some-what fix the tourism issue but now this happened. So I believe its a planned attack to the economy, either isis or pkk.

My brother is supposed to use that airport 2 days later to visit my family as there will be a 1 week holiday here, he's probably freaked out right now and I can't blame him sad.gif

There is a video of one of the terrorists gets shot, the police officer approaches him then runs away as he see's the bomb and right after that the bomb on that terrorist explodes.

I prefer not to share that video here but I'm sure soon it will be found on the internet easily. One of the terrorists is cought alive so we'll be certain whos responcible of this attack soon.

edit; Current numbers are 31 dead, 147 wounded sad.gif
