All Signs Point to Daesh in Istanbul Attack That Killed 36, Turkish PM Says
http://abcnews.go.com/International/explosions-reported-istanbul-airport/story?id=40197077
At least 36 people have been killed and 147 others injured following a terrorist attack at an international airport in Istanbul, according to Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim.

In a press conference, Yildirim said all signs point to ISIS being responsible for the attack. Three attackers carrying weapons arrived in a taxi to Istanbul's Ataturk airport, one of the world's busiest airports.
Daesh is wreaking havoc again - but now in Turkey.

It's not their first strike in Turkey actually (assuming this one's culprit is really Daesh).
According to this German page, the death toll now reaches 44 including the three suicide-bombers. 13 among them are foreigners.

The attacks in Turkey resulted in the rapid decrease in tourist numbers. Now, after this, it will decrease even more..
Most of the cafes and such businnesses in touristic places in Istanbul that relied on tourist customers have gone bankrupt, or they will in the not so distant future.

Not only here in Turkey, but seemingly the whole world has become similar to what it has been a few decades ago.
