    Hundreds of panicked people scrambled for safety Tuesday night as gunfire and at least two explosions echoed through one of Turkey's main airports, NBC News reported, citing witnesses.

    A man who works for a contractor at Ataturk International Airport in Istanbul told NBC News he saw three suicide bombers.

    The man, who identified himself as Omar, said he heard an explosion and then saw police dive onto a man who then blew himself up.

    People then tried to stop another person who appeared to be wearing explosives.
