    A WEDDING? What a brutal tragic event to unleash at a wedding. I cannot even imagine what a nightmare for those families. ALL of their friends and loved ones, gathered in one place, in a joyous celebration. These terrorists are monsters.

    At least 50 dead & up to 100 injured by TEEN suicide bomber. Horrific.

    At least 50 people have been been killed and nearly 100 injured after a child suicide bomber ripped through a wedding party in Turkey.

    Turkish president Tayyip Erdogan said it was likely that ISIS was behind the attack which saw the bomber, a boy, thought to be aged between 12 and 14, detonate his explosives among people dancing in the street at a party in the city of Gaziantep last night."

    ISTANBUL -- A child suicide bomber killed at least 51 people and wounded nearly 70 others at a Kurdish wedding party near Turkey's border with Syria, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Sunday, decrying the attack as an apparent attempt by Islamic State extremists to destabilize the nation by exploiting ethnic and religious tensions.

    "As of now, the preliminary conclusions by our governor's office and the police establishment point to an attack by Daesh," Erdogan said, using another common term for IS.
    "It was clear that Daesh had such an organization in Gaziantep or was attempting to make room for itself in recent times," he said.

    I hate this so much. A wedding, a time of happiness, then so many lives destroyed. DAMN those behind this to whatever hell awaits them.

    Turkish authorities have said a destroyed suicide vest was found at the scene of the bombing.

    A second security official told Reuters that they were investigating the possibility militants could have placed the explosives on the child without his or her knowledge and detonated them remotely, or that a mentally disabled child was duped into carrying the device, a tactic seen elsewhere in the region.

    "It could be that someone was loaded with explosives without even being aware of it and it may have been detonated remotely," the official said, adding a search was underway for suspected militants who may have played a reconnaissance role.

    ISIL militants used iron marbles to strengthen the effect of the bomb and most of the deaths occurred because of the marbles hitting people, according to the preliminary autopsy report on the attack that killed a total of 29 children, daily Hürriyet reported on Aug. 22.

    The mechanism of the bomb was the same as the ones used in the Oct. 10, 2015 suicide attack at the train station in central Ankara and the ISIL attack in the Suruç district of Şanlıurfa. Both claimed a total of 142 lives and wounded scores of others.

    In footage obtained from nearby surveillance cameras, two people can be seen fleeing the scene shortly after the attack. Investigators are exploring whether the duo dropped the suicide bomber to the area and watched the child’s actions, the report said.

    Police are also investigating whether the order to stage the attack was given by Deniz Büyükçelebi, the ISIL militant “responsible” for the group’s actions on the Turkish Syrian border.
