Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim has said that initial indications suggested the Islamic State group was responsible for the terror attack at Istanbul's Ataturk Airport that killed at least 36 people.

"The findings of our security forces point at the Daesh organisation as the perpetrators of this terror attack," Yildirim told reporters at the airport, using the Arabic name for the militant Jihadist organization, according to Turkish media reports.

According to Yildirim, three suicide bombers were to blame for the attack at the airport's international arrivals terminal.
