Turkey; 35 killed in two back to back blasts in two days


Turkey; Turkey is under a huge wave of terrorism as more than 35 men have been killed in two days and dozens are injured in two huge bomb blasts in two days.

Today a remote control bomb blast caused the death of seven security officials travelling in a military van in southeast Turkey on Thursday, security sources said, a day after a car bomb attack in the capital Ankara killed 28 people.

The blast hit the armored truck on the highway linking Diyarbakir, the largest city in the mainly Kurdish southeast, to the district of Lice.

Sources had before said the blast hit a group of vehicles.

The attack came a day after 28 people were killed and 61 injured in a bombing in the administrative heart of Turkey’s capital Ankara when a vehicle laden with explosives detonated as military buses passed near the armed forces’ headquarters, parliament and government buildings.

Turkey, a NATO member, faces multiple security pressures. It is part of a US-led partnership fighting Islamic State (Daesh) in neighboring Syria and Iraq, and has been shelling Kurdish militia fighters in northern Syria in recent days.
