US House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul said the Ataturk airport attack in Istanbul was like a sequel to the Brussels airport bombing.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Daesh is likely responsible for a series of attacks on Istanbul’s Ataturk international airport, US House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul said on Wednesday.

"I believe this most likely is an ISIS [Daesh] attack yesterday in Istanbul," McCaul stated in an interview with MSNBC. "This was like a sequel to Brussels but far more deadly than Brussels was."
