Explosion at Turkish wedding ceremony kills at least 50

An explosion near a wedding in the southern Turkish city of Gaziantep has killed at least 50 people and injured 94 more. The Turkish government has called it a "terror attack" and suggested it was carried out by a suicide bomber. President Tayyip Erdogan later estimated it was the work of ISIS.
Gaziantep, which is mainly Kurdish, is about 64km (40 miles) from the Syrian border. A suicide bomber killed two policemen there in May.
