Turkey Istanbul: Explosions and gunfire rock Ataturk airport

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-36658187

Quote:
At least two explosions and gunfire have rocked Istanbul's Ataturk international airport, with reports of "multiple" people injured.

Gunfire was directed from an airport car park, according to a witness quoted by Reuters news agency.

Taxis were ferrying wounded people from the airport, the witness added.

In December, a blast on the tarmac at a different Istanbul airport, Sabiha Gokcen, killed a cleaner.

Recent bomb attacks in Turkey have been linked to Kurdish separatists or the Islamic State group.

A US State Department travel warning for Turkey, originally published in March and updated on Monday, urges US citizens to "exercise heightened vigilance and caution when visiting public access areas, especially those heavily frequented by tourists."

Nothing to worry about, it's just Liam Neeson trying to find his daughter.

Ah, crap. And here I was worried about going through CDG again. When I went last fall, there was a bomb threat that cleared out eight gates.

Ten people have died after Tuesday's explosions at Istanbul's airport, Turkish Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag said.
Making bombs should be illegal.

I'm not sure if suicide bombings/attacks is a tactic of the PKK, so, I'm thinking ISIS

That's what I was thinking. The target doesn't seem right either. Looking back at the trend of PKK attacks the typically attacked Turkish military and not outright civilians, especially at an international terminal.

If you were a Turk (pun intended), you would know, and it would explain his license plate.
