A woman is comforted during a funeral for a victim of last night's attack on a wedding party that left 50 dead in Gaziantep, southeastern Turkey, near the Syrian border on August 21, 2016Gaziantep (Turkey) (AFP) – “They turned our wedding into a bloodbath,” said bride Besna Akdogan on Sunday as she left hospital after a suicide bombing killed 51 people at her wedding in southeastern Turkey. The funerals of some of the victims took place, meanwhile, with feelings running high in the town of Gaziantep near the Syrian border where hundreds gathered following Saturday’s bombing. Shouts of “shame on you, Erdogan” rang out as others threw water bottles at police, amid anger at the president for not doing more to prevent the attack on a Kurdish wedding which the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) said the Islamic State group had threatened to carry out.
