Car Bomb Blast Rocks Turkish Border Town

A three-year-old was reportedly killed and 15 other people were wounded on Friday in a car bomb blast in the southeastern Turkish town of Viransehir. The explosion took place outside a housing complex for judges and prosecutors in the town in Sanliurfa, near the border with Syria, Middle East Eye reported. Provincial governor, Gungor Azim Tuna, was quoted by state-run Anadolu Agency as saying a three-year-old caught in the blast had died. He said the wounded were taken to hospital but were not believed to have any serious injuries. Tuna said the blast was a "terror attack" caused by a parked vehicle that was loaded with explosives and detonated using a remote control. Turkey's Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag said on Twitter that no attack would weaken Turkey's fight against terrorism. "Our determined and effective fight against terror will continue," he said. No group immediately claimed the attack, and Bozdag did not say which organization the government suspected. No one has claimed the Viransehir attack.
