Explosion at Turkish airport was ‘probably a bomb’, experts warn

An explosion that killed one person and caused widespread damage at a Turkish airport on Wednesday appears to have been a bomb, aviation experts have told The Telegraph.

Armed police sealed off part of an airport terminal in Istanbul early this morning after an explosion killed an aircraft cleaner and damaged planes standing hundreds of yards away.

While the cause of the blast is not yet known, it comes amid a wave of Isis-sponsored terror attacks in Turkey and could raise concerns that the group has been able to breach airport security.
