World Condemns Istanbul Airport Terrorist Attack
Leaders from around the world expressed sadness and anger Wednesday, after an overnight terror attack on Turkey’s central airport in Istanbul left at least 36 victims dead and 147 others injured.
In an early morning statement, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak condemned the suicide bombers, describing the attack as a “heinous act,” and called on Muslim countries to unite in combating terror.
“Malaysia stands firm and ready to unite with all countries in the fight against the scourge of terrorism,” he said, offering his condolences to the families of the victims, and extended Malaysia’s assistance to Turkey.
“I strongly urge Muslim nations to unite and increase cooperation, especially in condemning and combating the acts of terror by those who blaspheme the name of Islam,” he said in Facebook and Twitter postings reported by Anadolu Agency.
