At least 31 people died after three suicide bombers blew themselves up at an airport in Istanbul on Tuesday night.

Istanbul Ataturk is the biggest airport in Turkey and the 11th busiest in the world.

The attackers apparently detonated the explosives at the security check-in at the entrance to the airport’s international terminal as they exchanged gunfire with the police.

The airport is closed until at least 8 p.m. local time on Wednesday. The scene around the airport has become chaos as authorities attempt to direct traffic in the area. Travelers are stranded outside as they arrange transportation away from the carnage.

Below are some photos from the scene.
