An explosion at a wedding in southeastern Turkey killed 50 people and injured 100 others Saturday night, the state-run news agency Anadolu reported.
The blast occurred in the city of Gaziantep, located about 95 kilometers (60 miles) north of the war-torn Syrian city of Aleppo.
Regional Governor Ali Yerlikaya called the incident a “terror attack” and said it took place in Akdere neighborhood of the Sahinbey district, Anadolu reported.
The agency added that the wedding celebration took place on a street, which is common in southern Turkey.
Video of the aftermath shows hundreds of people in the darkened street as rescue workers lift victims into ambulances. Orhan Akin, Gaziantep bureau chief for the Ihlas News Agency, told CNN Turk that he saw “at least 20 ambulances carrying injured people.”
Children are among the dead, a woman who lost most of her family told Turkish television the bombing seriously injured her husband and killed four of her five children. “If my remaining child was not alive, I would commit suicide,” she said.
The suspect is said to be between the age of 12 and 14 and a suicide vest was found at the scene.
