Suspected Istanbul airport bombers were Russian, Uzbek and Kyrgyz

Three suspects in the Istanbul airport gun and bomb attack have be identified as Russian, Uzbek and Kyrgyz.

EWN's Turkey Correspondent Abed Ahmed reports that the suspects came from an Isis stronghold in Syria and crossed into the Turkey border with explosives.

Investigations led officials to locate an apartment the suspects were renting prior to the suicide attack.

The death toll from the deadly terror attack on the main airport has now risen to 44, with over 200 others wounded.

According to Ahmed, one of the deceased victims was a military doctor who was trying to retrieve his son who had escaped from Isis.
