"An Islamic State group suicide bomber as young as 12 years old attacked an outdoor Kurdish wedding party in southeastern Turkey, killing at least 51 people and wounding dozens of others, the Turkish president said Sunday. The bombing late Saturday in Gaziantep, near Turkey's border with Syria, was the deadliest attack in Turkey this year. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, speaking live on national television in front of Istanbul's city hall, said the attacker was aged between 12 and 14. He said 69 people were wounded, with 17 of them in critical condition." (08/21/16)
