Apple CEO Tim Cook sent a message via Twitter on Wednesday to show solidarity with the victims of the deadly attacks on Istanbul's main Atatürk Airport.

"Dualarımız Türk halkı için #Istanbul," Cook tweeted in Turkish, which translates to "Our prayers for Turkish nation #Istanbul."

44 people were killed, including 19 foreigners, and 237 injured on Tuesday in a triple suicide bombing and gun attack, which the official said Daesh was the main suspect, at Istanbul's main Atatürk Airport, in the latest deadly strike to stun Turkey's most-populated city.
