Tragic stories of the lives cut short by three suicide bombers at Istanbul airport are beginning to emerge.
The attackers, believed to be ISIS extremists, claimed 42 lives, most of them Turkish citizens, when they detonated their devices at the city's Ataturk Airport.
Among those who died were five Saudis, two Iraqis, one Tunisian, an Uzbek, an Iranian, a Ukrainian, a Jordanian and a Chinese national.

A number of people killed on Tuesday had only come to the airport to meet their loved ones or do a job, including Göksel Kurnaz, 38, who was picking up his boss from the airport.
Serkan Turk, a 24-year-old physical education graduate who had gone to the airport to meet his mother.
He was killed by the second blast, after he went to try and help those injured by the first.

Customs officer Umut Sakaroğlu has been hailed as a hero for his actions. He was standing guard as a terrorist tried to go through the first set of security.

Realising the danger people were in, it appears Sakaroğlu shot at the suicide bomber, who then detonated his belt, killing the customs officer.
However, his colleagues say had he not acted, many more people would have been killed.
'The explosion came very close to areas where passengers are waiting for people,' a source told Hurriyet.
'Unfortunately, at that moment Sakaroğlu was martyred. But if not for that intervention, there would be more casualties.'

The first funerals were conducted on Wednesday, buried within 24 hours in accordance with Muslim tradition.
The coffin of customs officer Siddik Turgan was carried to the service by dozens of family members, while his distraught daughter watched on, reaching out to her father's coffin.
The airport taxi drivers also gathered for the funeral of fellow driver Mustafa Bayrakli, 51, another of the victims.
Waiting to collect her father's body earlier today, Oznur Buzakci wept as she told Hurriyet: 'I can't find anything to say. Many people are hurt. On this holy day, they hurt everybody. There is no justice.'
And as the families begin to bury their dead, stories from inside the terminal continue to surface.
