Death toll rises to 45 in Istanbul airport attack

The death toll has risen to 45 following the terrorist attack on Istanbul's Ataturk international airport, the DHA news agency reported on Saturday.

A Jordanian national died of his injuries, taking to 20 the number of foreign nationals killed.

Turkish authorities have said that the three assailants came from Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia, and carried out what appeared to be a coordinated strike on the major global transit hub.

Some 240 people were injured in Tuesday's attack.
