The Ataturk airport in Istanbul resumed business early Wednesday morning with boosted security, following hours of mess and chaos that ensued from a series of suicide bombing attacks. 
 
At least 41 people were killed and more than 140 others injured.
 
Turkey declared on Wednesday a day of national mourning over the deadly Istanbul airport attack. 
 
Turkish media reported that Turkey's intelligence units sent a warning letter to related state institutions about potential attacks by the Islamic State (IS) militants nearly 20 days ago.
 
As of now, no group has claimed responsibility for the attacks.
 
Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim blamed the IS for the atrocity, though he said efforts were continuing to identify the perpetrators.
 
Three attackers stormed the international terminal at Istanbul's Ataturk airport on Tuesday night and then blew themselves up.
 
Inside the arrivals section of the international terminal, the scene of the series of attacks, people are on the move everywhere and many are waiting for their relatives and friends as usual.
 
Outside the terminal, the attackers left two huge scars for the airport, mainly on the ceiling with one much larger than that inside.
   
At the security-check area, the most visible damage are three glass walls left cracked in the explosion.
   
Workers were working to erase the scars, not new to a metropolis that has come under a series of deadly attacks over the past year amid a deteriorating security situation in the country.
 
This is the deadliest attack on the metropolis in recent memory and forcing the suspension of all flights for hours.
