Video: CCTV footage shows Istanbul airport attacker frantically looking for victims

CCTV footage has caught one of the attackers at Istanbul Ataturk Airport smashing his rifle on the floor in frustration over being unable to find new victims.

The footage released by Il Giornale newspaper shows dozens of people running away after hearing gunshots outside.

The attacker, who was dressed in black and carrying a rifle, is seen entering the building, but finds the airport’s registration area completely empty.

The man then appears to search the area for victims, but failing to find any, throws his gun on the floor in an apparent display of anger.
