A terrorism expert hopes Western countries pay as much care and attention to Turkey's Ataturk Airport, as was paid to the Paris attacks.

The airport in Istanbul re-opened this morning after 41 people were killed and another 239 wounded when bombers blew themselves up yesterday.

UK terrorism expert David Lowe told Rachel Smalley it is an attack on the world.

"Any airport, you're targeting the world because you look at the casualties there's been - they are from around the world. That's why I'm leaning more towards Islamic State carrying out this attack.

"The world should be giving the world as much support as possible."
