CNN: Istanbul terror attack: 41 killed; airport resumes flights

Istanbul (CNN)Just five hours after terrorists killed 41 people at an Istanbul airport, travelers returned to the site of the carnage -- much to the surprise of some critics.

"I find this totally astonishing," said Professor Larry Kobilinsky of the John Jay College of Criminal Justice. "I've never seen such a massive crime scene looked at for five hours. It's just impossible. You're going to compromise, you're going to contaminate evidence. ... They should not have turned this open to the public."

Passengers walked over shards of glass as workers tried to wash away blood. The stench of smoke still lingered in the air after three gunmen opened fire and detonated explosives at Ataturk Airport, wounding 239 people.
