Terror in Turkey: Major Suicide Bomb Rocks Wedding - 30 Dead, 94 Injured

The death toll from the terror attack that struck the Turkish city of Gaziantep has risen to 30 dead with 94 civilians wounded according to the city's Governor reports Sputnik News Wire.

The attack targeted a wedding on Saturday night with the purpose of creating mass civilian carnage. Parliamentary deputy from the ruling AKP Party, Samil Tayyar, said that he believed that the Daesh terror network was behind the attack, not the PKK.

Ambulances continue to race to the scene as authorities attempt to get a handle on the carnage that has resulted from the strike.

RT reports that one social media user who saw the scene unfold said that a "suicide bomber blows himself up" and ​claims that "close to a hundred" people have been killed or injured.

Gaziantep Governor Ali Yerlikaya has released a statement saying the blast was an attack by “terrorist organizations,” according to Turkish news outlet Haberturk.
