Officials in Turkey are releasing information on the suspects behind the terrorist attack in Istanbul's airport on Tuesday.

Residents in the Fatih district were shown video and images of three men, as the attackers rented an apartment in the area, and one of the bombers left behind his passport.

As reported by CNN, officials in Turkey have ascertained strong evidence that ISIS were heavily involved in the attack.

Turkey's state media identified the three men as being from Russia, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan.

It is believed that the men entered Turkey a month ago, arriving from an ISIS stronghold in Syria.

The death toll has now risen to 44, with Palestinian officials reporting that a 3-year-old boy has died from his injuries, two days after his mother also succumbed to her injuries.
