Up to 50 people dead in Turkey bomb blast


A suicide bomber killed up to 50 people and injured dozens more in Turkey last night.

It is understood that the attacker walked among guests celebrating a wedding in the city of Gaziantep and detonated an explosive device, killing and maiming scores of people around.

According to Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the attack bears the hallmarks of the extremist organization ISIS.

Turkey has seen a great deal of violence and volatility in recent weeks, after a failed coup on July 16 that triggered a harsh purge of military personnel and public servants suspected to be involved.
