New Delhi: Actor Hrithik Roshan actually escaped death by inches as he was there at the Instanbul airport a little before three suicide bombers attacked, killing 36 and injuring close to 150 people.
The 42-year-old actor took to his Twoitter handle to share the news and said, “missed connecting flight at Istanbul n wer stuck at airport next flight ws next day,but took economy n flew out earlier. #Prayers4istanbul.”
“Ws helped by d kindest staff at Istanbul arport hours ago. Shocking news. Innocents killed 4 religion.V must stand united against terrorism,” he added.
The ‘Bang Bang’ was on a vacation in Spain and Africa with his sons Hrehaan and Hridhaan and was on way to India via Istanbul.
The attack on Europe’s third-busiest airport is one of the deadliest in a series of suicide bombings in Turkey, which is struggling to contain the spillover from neighbouring Syria’s civil war and battling an insurgency by Kurdish militants in its southeast.
One attacker opened fire in the departures hall with an automatic rifle, sending passengers diving for cover and trying to flee, before all three blew themselves up in or around the arrivals hall a floor below, witnesses and officials said.
