Turkish intelligence units allegedly warned relevant government bodies about a possible attack by Islamic State terrorist in Istanbul week before Tuesday night's deadly attack by three suspected ISIS suicide bombers.

According to Turkish media Wednesday, the country's intelligence apparatus sent a warning letter to state institutions some 20 days ago about a potential attack.

Turkish Hurriyet Daily News cited Doğan TV as reporting that the warning message mentioned the names of potential targets, including Istanbul Atatürk Airport.
