Support for Istanbul floods social media after deadly airport terror attack
On Tuesday, news alerts we've grown far too accustomed to filled inboxes and Twitter streams. A series of explosions detonated in a major transportation hub — this time at Ataturk Airport in Turkey's Istanbul. Three gunmen strapped with bombs and guns blazing wreaked havoc on innocent travelers. At least 36 were killed, and nearly 150 wounded, according to CNN.
Almost immediately signs of support started to flood social media platforms, as the global population came to grips with yet another deadly terror attack. Global Citizen joins the calls for support, and action, to help create a more tolerant, peaceful world, where love and tolerance trump hate and senseless violence.
Several suicide bombers hit the international terminal of Istanbul's Ataturk airport on Tuesday, killing 36 people and wounding some 60 others. Officials say as many as four attackers may have been involved, and the number of dead is expected to rise. The FAA had issued a temporary ground stop for all U.S. flights departing for Istanbul, but passengers at LAX on Turkish Airlines say they've been told their flights will take off. Turkey has suffered several bombings in recent months linked to Kurdish or Islamic State group militants. Our thoughts are with the people of Turkey, and everyone affected by this tragedy.
