Two of the suicide bombers who attacked Istanbul’s main airport this week were named by a source close to the investigation on Friday.
The men and another terrorist who killed himself were previously identified as foreign nationals from Russia’s Dagestan region, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan.
A prosecution source, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media, named the pair as Rakim Bulgarov and Vadim Osmanov. The source did not give any information on either man’s nationality.
Tuesday night’s attack saw three terrorists open fire at the international terminal of Ataturk International Airport before detonating explosives, killing 44 people and injuring more than 200.
Osmanov was identified from a passport photocopy given to a property agent in Istanbul’s Fatih district, the source said.
On Friday, Istanbul governor’s office said 24 suspects including 15 foreigners had been detained in connection with the attack.
