Vehicles are seen behind a broken window at Turkey's largest airportBy Humeyra Pamuk and Daren Butler ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Three suicide bombers opened fire then blew themselves up in Istanbul's main international airport on Tuesday, killing 36 people and wounding close to 150 in what Turkey's prime minister said appeared to have been an attack by Islamic State militants. The attack on Europe's third-busiest airport was one of the deadliest in a series of suicide bombings in Turkey, which is part of the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State and is struggling to contain the spillover from neighboring Syria's civil war. Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said: "This attack, targeting innocent people is a vile, planned terrorist act." "There is initial evidence that each of the three suicide bombers blew themselves up after opening fire," he told reporters at the airport.
