Ankara, Turkey - A video obtained by the Turkish newspaper Haberturk shows a man being shot purportedly during Tuesday’s triple suicide bombing at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport that killed 44 people and wounded hundreds.


Turkish media late Thursday are reporting that the man was a plainclothes police officer who asked one of the suicide bombers for identification and was subsequently shot. The video shows the alleged police officer, in short sleeves, approaching a man dressed in black. The man in black then appears to shoot the officer, who falls to the ground.

The Associated Press was not able to independently verify the location of the video or the sequence of events.

The Turkish government is blaming the airport attack on Islamic State militants, but there has been no claim of responsibility from the group.
