“This is yet another brutal and senseless attack against civilians and against humanity as a whole. Tonight, our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families and with the people of Turkey. The world needs to unite and fight this threat and to defeat the fanatics who commit such barbarian atrocities,” Lauder declared.

“Once again, innocent lives have been snuffed out by terrorist forces for whom nothing is sacred. Once again, terrorists have proven that anyone can be a target, anywhere and at any time,” Lauder added. “Those who masterminded and carried out these attacks must be caught and reprehended. Terror is terror, whether it strikes the cafes of Paris and Tel Aviv or the airports of Brussels and Istanbul.”

The latest report from Turkey numbers the dead at 36 with 147 injured in the attack at Atatürk Airport in Istanbul, the country’s main airport, according to Turkish authorities. Two suspects blew themselves up outside the security checkpoint in the international terminal, after police opened fire on them.
