    Enhanced security is being maintained at Boston's Logan Airport after dozens were killed in a terror attack at Turkey's largest airport Tuesday night.

    The gunmen opened fire at the entrance of the international arrivals area at Ataturk International Airport in Istanbul. More than 100 people have been injured.

    Massachusetts State Police say they are monitoring the situation and are maintaining the enhanced security measures they already have in place.

    Some Turkish airline passengers we spoke to who were already on their way to Boston when the attack was carried out said they had no idea they had just missed it.

    Ersel Gumus said, "We were discussing with my family it's not easy to say we are lucky to have survived because lots of people were killed. But these kind of terrorist attacks have been all through Europe. It's becoming common unfortunately."

    The FAA has cancelled all flights to and from Turkey until further notice.

    The earliest the airport could reopen is Wednesday morning.
