Ukrainian among victims of Istanbul terror attack (photos, video)

At least 36 people died and about 150 wounded in suicide bombings in Europe's third busiest airport

One Ukrainian and one Iranian citizen are among those killed at Istanbul's Ataturk International airport, which came under triple suicide bomber attack on Tuesday night.

At least 36 people, mainly Turkish nationals, died in the terror attack blamed on Islamic State militants.

The blasts occurred at the entrance of international flights terminal, domestic flights terminal, and the parking lot.

According to Ukraine's Foreign Ministry, one more Ukrainian is wounded. Currently the staff of Ukraine's Consulate General is checking local hospitals in search for other possible victims among Ukrainian citizens.

The airport partially resumed its work on Wednesday morning, while many of the scheduled flights were cancelled or delayed.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan urged an international "joint fight" against terror after the attack, the fourth deadly bombing in Istanbul this year alone.

The attack comes just two weeks after a bomb blast hit a police vehicle in Istanbul's central Beyazit area.

Seven police officers and four civilians were killed in that attack and 36 others wounded.
