Apparently more than 30 people were found dead in the bomb blast at Suruc, Turkey yesterday. The suicide bombing wiped all the people around leaving blood shed all over the place. At least 100 others were wounded, provincial Gov. Izzettin Kucuk told Turkish media.
The explosion occurred mid-day at the Amara Cultural Park in Suruc where people gathered in a group to help Syrian Kurdish city of Kobani rebuild.
“Kids were screaming, everyone was screaming and running,” eyewitness Erhan Subasi told. “Everyone was in a panic but trying to help.”
Speaking at a news conference, the Turkish prime minister, Ahmet Davutoğlu, said that preliminary findings pointed to Islamic State having carried out the “clearly terrorist” attack but he added: “We are not at a point to make a final judgment.”
Local hospitals told Turkish media that 76 people were wounded in the bombing, several of them severely. The ministry said the death toll was expected to rise. “I saw more than 20 bodies,” one witness told Reuters by telephone. “It was a huge explosion, we all shook.”
