Baku-APA. U.S. President Barack Obama was briefed about the attack at Ataturk International Airport by his homeland security adviser, Lisa Monaco, shortly after the news broke, the White House said.

Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, tweeted: "We must do everything possible to keep this horrible terrorism outside the United States."

Near the airport in Istanbul, taxi driver Abdulrahman Namli said he was worried about terrorists targeting Turkey. "(We have) a big problem," he said.
