Holidaymakers return to Glasgow airport after Turkish bus bomb
Worried relatives waited at Glasgow Airport to be re-united with family members returning to Scotland after the bus bomb in the Turkish tourist resort of Kusadasi killed five people on Saturday. They were among a host of Scottish families who had come to greet loved ones, who feared that they may have been caught up in the terrorist attack.
Many of the returning holidaymakers looked tired and relieved to be back. John Thomson was met by mum and dad as he flew in from busy Bodram Airport. Mr Thomson told how he spent the last two days of his holiday in the town of Ephesus, just north of Kusadasi. He said: 'I was thinking about going to Kusadasi, but I didn't get around to it, which is lucky.'
George Irvine, returning with his wife Elaine and their two daughters said: 'It was frightening but there's no way it will stop us going back to Turkey. You're at risk anywhere now.'
Despite the attack, the UK foreign office said Turkey was still safe to visit. Turkish authorities believe the bombing was carried out by the Kurdish PKK separatist group.
