    Explosions rocked Turkey's largest airport Tuesday night, killing at least three dozen people and wounding scores more in what appeared to be a coordinated terror attack, officials said. Stefan Holt reports. (Published Tuesday, June 28, 2016)

    Istanbul's busy Ataturk Airport reopened on Wednesday morning, hours after a coordinated terror attack left dozens dead and scores wounded in the international arrivals hall, NBC News reported. 

    Istanbul's governor said Wednesday that the death toll had climbed to 41 — including at least 10 foreigners and 3 dual nationals. More than 230 people were injured, the governor added. 

    Turkey's Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said three terrorists had arrived in a cab, opening fire and setting off at least two explosions.

    "People were wounded, people fell down in front of me ... They were torn to pieces," airport worker Hacer Peksen told The Associated Press. 

    There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but Yildirim said it appeared ISIS was to blame.

    There were no immediate details on what if any additional security measures were in place Wednesday as the airport reopened.
