Two of the three attackers who had blown themselves up at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport were named by a prosecution source, Anadolu Agency reported on Friday.

The two attackers were named as Rakim Bulgarov and Vadim Osmanov, the Turkish news agency said.

The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, didn’t say what the nationality of each of the two suicide bombers had been.

Anadolu Agency reported on Thursday that the three perpetrators of the deadly terror attack on Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport on Tuesday night had been identified as a Russian national from Dagestan, in the Northern Caucasus, a citizen of Uzbekistan and a citizen of Kyrgyzstan.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack but Turkish authorities believe the Islamic State group was behind the shooting and triple suicide bombing at the airport that claimed the lives of 44 people and left around 230 wounded.
