People leave Istanbul's Ataturk Airport after an attack by suicide bombers.

ISTANBUL -- Three suicide bombers attacked Istanbul Ataturk Airport late Tuesday evening, killing at least 41 people and wounding 239 others, Turkish authorities said. Initial government assessments suggest the self-described Islamic State was responsible, Turkey's Prime Minister Binali Yildirim told reporters.

Twenty-three Turkish citizens, five Saudis and two Iraqis died in the attacks, an official said. Citizens from China, Jordan, Tunisia, Uzbekistan, Iran and Ukraine were also killed. The governor's office said 109 people injured in the attacks had already been discharged from hospital.

Police shot at the attackers outside the security gate of the airport's international terminal, a senior Turkish official told The WorldPost. The attackers did not make it through the security gate before detonating their explosives.

"Police fired shots at suspects at the international terminal's entry, before security check, in an effort to neutralize them," the official said.

Video on social media appeared to show surveillance footage of one explosion:

Graphic images showed bloodied victims lying on the ground outside the terminal, where yellow taxis normally line up to shuttle travelers into the city.

"I was taking my mother to her plane when the attack occurred," an eyewitness told Turkish media outlet Haberturk. "I got to the parking garage quickly, and everyone was running in all directions."

The eyewitness described the explosions as "very violent," saying, "We were in a pool of blood."

"Everything happened very fast," Ahmad Alomary told HuffPost Arabi. "I was waiting for a friend of mine [who was] coming from Dubai inside the [airport] arrival hall, then all of a sudden we heard a loud explosion noise and the security guards asked everybody to lie on the ground. The hall was crowded with many people, some with children. We all laid down, then I managed to run out from the hall."

Most of the victims appear to have been Turkish, a source told HuffPost Arabi. Many of the injured were brought to the nearby government-run Bak?rköy hospital, where an enormous crowd of worried family and friends gathered outside.

Ataturk, Turkey's largest airport, is the main international airport serving Istanbul. All flights were temporarily suspended at the airport in the wake of the attack, including those inbound from the U.S., and Facebook activated its Safety Check feature for the surrounding area. Flights to and from the airport have since resumed and American airports have increased security in response to the attacks, ABC News reported.

Dazed travelers in the airport's domestic terminal made phone calls to loved ones and waited for information, according to one woman who was present. 

At least some people inside the airport were told that they wouldn't be able to leave for hours as authorities searched the building, another person who was waiting to be evacuated told The WorldPost.

Turkey has been reeling from months of attacks targeting both tourists and security forces. Self-described Islamic State militants have claimed credit for some of the bombings, while Kurdish militant groups, which the Turkish government is fighting in the country's south, took responsibility for others. 

"Terrorism strikes with no regard for faith and values," President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in a statement. "Nor do terrorists distinguish between their victims. We urge the world, especially Western countries, to take a firm stand against terrorism."

"Make no mistake: For terrorist organizations, there is no difference between Istanbul and London, Ankara and Berlin, Izmir and Chicago or Antalya and Rome," he continued. "Unless all government and the entire mankind join forces in the fight against terrorism, much worse things than what we fear to imagine today will come true. The Ataturk Airport attack should serves as a turning point in the fight against terrorism around the world and especially in Western countries."

Turkey began throttling access to news coverage just hours after the attack, a practice that has become common in recent months, watchdog groups said. The prime minister's office issued the gag order to all media outlets, which banned the sharing of any visuals from the incident, according to Vocative. Both Facebook and Twitter experienced disruptions as well.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest responded to the attacks in a statement, saying, "Ataturk International Airport, like Brussels Airport which was attacked earlier this year, is a symbol of international connections and the ties that bind us together."

"We remain steadfast in our support for Turkey, our NATO Ally and partner, along with all of our friends and allies around the world, as we continue to confront the threat of terrorism," he added.

Warren Buffett threw down the gauntlet to Donald Trump again last week. It happened after Trump lied about Buffett's federal income tax payments on national TV.

The day after the Orlando massacre, the New York Daily News and the New York Post ran front-page headlines that couldn't be more different.

Bill de Blasio could well be the most mired mayor in New York City history. As the subject of multiple investigations at the state and federal level, he's not just tabloid fodder.

According to much of the mainstream media, Bernie Sanders' recent interview with the New York Daily News was an unmitigated disaster. But a closer look reveals a crucial point about the presidency that is often overlooked: a candidate's vision and record matter a lot more than specific policy proposals.

The following is an imagined 1932 New York Daily News editorial board interview with Franklin Roosevelt during his presidential campaign. The Roosevelt statements are taken primarily from his 1933 inaugural address> and his 1936 campaign speech at Madison Square Garden.

Once again, the Daily News has revealed a kooky left-wing politician making grand promises without fully understanding the details necessary to achieve those plans. Such politicians believe in crazy things like "vision" and "leadership" and expect that by mobilizing the hard-working and intelligent Americans to believe their "vision", they can accomplish such outlandish things as walking on the moon and guaranteeing healthcare and a living wage to all Americans.

In his latest column, "The Governing Cancer of Our Times," New York Times conservative columnist David Brooks tries to explain Donald Trump's rise as a presidential candidate.

Forty-five years ago, my father, Joe Colombo, the alleged boss of the "Colombo" crime family, and founder of the Italian-American Civil Rights League, was gunned down among a crowd of thousands in one of the most highly publicized shootings in New York City's history.

Bankruptcy is not as bad as you think. Before you dismiss this seemingly novel idea, give Phill Mahony a chance to explain it to you.

Trump and Palin can play at being stupid, but one is a billionaire and one was a governor. Please. That's success by virtually any measure.

The number of inmates in solitary confinement in the State of New York hit a three-year high this past September -- over 4,000 prisoners.

In a classic example of the media being stenographers for law enforcement, DNAinfo delivers a piece built exclusively off of the word of police sources. Almost every single paragraph ends with 'police sources say', 'police said' or some other variation.

I probably shouldn't do this, but I'm going to let you in on a secret about the newspaper game: Reporters are childish people. And God bless them for that trait, because it's what sustains that sense of wonder the best ones never lose.

The Kennedy Connection was a cleverly written, suspenseful page turner in the best sense and Shooting for the Stars is its' worthy successor. In this saga, Malloy is thrown into the sleazy, headline-grabbing world of a prime-time TV newsmagazine when he joins forces with a beautiful reporter who has uncovered answers long buried that lead to the solving of a cold case from decades before.

Surely there are children who saw the screenshots from the cover of the New York Daily News, and are asking their parents tough questions this week. But their curiosity and questioning should not make us afraid.

This week's expiration of rent regulations shows just how anti-tenant the state legislature remains, putting over one million apartments at risk for unreasonable rate increases.
