At Least 28 Killed in Apparent Islamic State Suicide Attack in Turkey

At least 28 people, mostly university-aged students, were killed in an apparent suicide bombing at a rally in the Turkish border town of Suruc. According to reports, another 100 or more were injured.

The death toll is expected to rise as many of the wounded sustained life-threatening injuries. It was the deadliest terror attack in Turkey since 50 people were killed in the border town Reyhanli in 2013.

The explosion happened at around noon at the Amara Cultural Park in Suruc, a town only a few miles from the Syrian Kurdish city of Kobani. The group had gathered to announce their plans to help rebuild Kobani, which was devastated after fighting between Syrian rebels, Kurdish forces and ISIS.
