An eye witness at the Turkey airport suicide bomb blast has reported that a police officer tackled one of the suicide bombers to the ground just before the terrorist detonated his bomb.

Three suicide bombers blew themselves up at the entrance of the international terminal at Turkey's largest airport; Istanbul Ataturk,  Turkey.

A porter who works at the airport saw the first explosion happen. And as people panicked and started to run, he joined the fleeing airport crowd.

But at that moment he looked back and saw a police officer tackle one of the suicide bombers to the ground and struggle with him, before the attacker detonated his bomb, according to the eyewitness.
