Footage shows Istanbul airport attacker looking for victims

Istanbul, June 30 (IANS) Some CCTV footage has caught one of the attackers at Istanbul Ataturk Airport smashing his rifle on the floor in frustration over being unable to find new victims.

Forty three people were killed and over 230 injured in gun and bomb attacks at Europe’s third busiest airport on Tuesday.

Three suicide bombers first opened fire outside of the terminal to create panic before two of the attackers entered the building and blew themselves up, while the third detonated his explosive device at the entrance.

Footage released by Il Giornale.it shows dozens of people running away after hearing gunshots outside.

The attacker, who was dressed in black and carrying a rifle, is seen entering the building, but finds the airport’s registration area completely empty.

The man then appears to search the area for victims, but failing to find any, throws his gun on the floor in an apparent display of anger.

Turkish police said the three bombers at the airport were citizens of Russia, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan with links to the Islamic State terrorist group.
