Bombing at Wedding Kills at Least 22 in Turkey

ANKARA, Turkey — A bomb attack targeting an outdoor wedding party in southeastern Turkey on Saturday killed at least 22 people and wounded 94 others, the authorities said.

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. Other officials said it could have been carried out by either Kurdish militants or Islamic State extremists.
