Deadly blast hits Turkish wedding


At least 22 people were killed and 94 wounded when a suspected suicide bomber targeted a wedding celebration in the Turkish city of Gaziantep on Saturday.

Ambulances raced to the scene and video footage showed emergency services rushing through packed streets in the city.

The attack appeared to have hit when a large group of people from a wedding party took to the streets in celebration, security sources said.

Government officials say Islamic State is believed to be behind the attack.

It’s the latest incident in a surge in violence this week in the mainly Kurdish southeast.

Islamic State has been blamed for suicide bombings on Kurdish gatherings in the past.

Turkey faces multiple security threats from Islamic State militants at home and across the border with neighbouring Syria, as well as from the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).
