Wedding Hell

Gaziantep, Turkey—A woman cries at the morgue as she waits for the coffin of a relative killed in a suicide bombing in southern Turkey on August 21. A child suicide bomber attacked a Kurdish wedding party, killing at least 54 people, including at least 22 children, in Gaziantep, near the border with Syria. The Turkish government blamed the Islamic State militant group, also known as ISIS, for the attack and said the bomber was between 12 and 14 years old. Dozens more were wounded in the attack, the latest in a string of bombings, including one in June at Istanbul Ataturk Airport.
