Mastermind behind Istanbul airport attack ‘blew himself up’ in Georgia

Georgia’s State Security Service spokesman Nino Giorgobiano on Friday confirmed Chechen double-amputee Akhmed Chatayev, suspected of organizing a deadly attack at Istanbul’s airport in 2016, was killed in a counterterrorism operation last week on the outskirts of the Georgian capital.

“As a result of a 20-hour special operation, two members of the criminal group were killed, whereas one individual, Akhmed Chatayev who was staying in the flat, blew himself up,” Giorgobiano said.
