Suicide bomber in Suruç, Turkey, kills at least 30 people
A suicide bomb attack has killed at least 28 people and injured at least 100 others in the Turkish town of Suruç. The bombing seemed to target a group of university students from the Federation of Socialist Youth Associations who were headed to Kobane to help with rebuilding. The Islamic State is believed to be responsible.
Suruç is in Sanlurfa province. Travellers should be aware that many countries advise against all travel to within 10 kilometers of the border with Syria, and against unnecessary travel to the areas of Sirnak, Mardin, Sanlurfa, Gaziantep, Kilis and Hatay provinces.
