Dramatic footage shows two women opening fire with what appeared to be a machine gun and throwing grenades at a police bus in the Bayrampasa district of Istanbul. Police returned fire, injuring one of the women, before tracking them to a nearby government building where they had barricaded themselves in.

Residents were evacuated from the area as officers launched an assault on the building, shooting the pair dead after the women ignored calls for them to surrender. Meanwhile, distraught parents made frantic attempts to contact their children after their school was cordoned off during the police operation.
