Hollywood stars are sending their prayers to Istanbul in the wake of a terrorist attack at their Ataturk airport Tuesday that left at least 41 people dead and dozens injured.

As details continue to emerge about the tragedy, stars like Madonna, Kate Hudson and Jared Leto have flooded social media with messages mourning the victims and praying for peace.

Multiple suicide bombers detonated themselves after an exchange of gunfire with police, an internal alert being circulated among U.S. law enforcement agencies says.

Istanbul Ataturk Airport is one of the busiest international hubs in the world, handling 62 million passengers a year.
