Thirty-six people were killed and several injured in a suicide attack on Istanbul's Ataturk airport late on 28 June.

Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan was at the airport just hours before the deadly attack. Roshan, was travelling to India from Spain via Istanbul, accompanied by his sons, Hrehaan and Hridhaan.

The 42-year-old actor took to his Twitter handle to share the news and said, "missed connecting flight at Istanbul n was stuck at airport next flight was next day,but took economy n flew out earlier. #Prayers4istanbul."

"Was helped by d kindest staff at Istanbul airport hours ago. Shocking news. Innocents killed 4 religion.We must stand united against terrorism," he added.

The attack on Europe's third-busiest airport is one of the deadliest in a series of suicide bombings in Turkey, which is struggling to contain the spillover from neighbouring Syria's civil war and battling an insurgency by Kurdish militants in its southeast.

One attacker opened fire in the departures hall with an automatic rifle, sending passengers diving for cover and trying to flee, before all three blew themselves up in or around the arrivals hall a floor below, witnesses and officials said.
