The Guardian: Turkish PM says Isis likely perpetrator of wedding blast which killed at least 30
Deputy prime minister earlier condemned ‘barbaric’ attack on wedding party in Gaziantep, near Syrian border
A bomb attack targeting an outdoor wedding party in south-eastern Turkey, which has killed at least 30 people and wounded 94 others, is likely to have been perpetrated by Isis, says the country’s prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
Earlier the deputy prime minister, Mehmet Simsek, said the “barbaric” attack in the city of Gaziantep, near the border with Syria, appeared to be a suicide bombing.
Photos taken after the explosion showed several bodies covered with white sheets as a crowd gathered nearby.
The Gaziantep governor’s office raised the death toll early on Sunday from 22 to 30. It said the number of wounded remained at 94.
