An apparent suicide bombing ripped through a rally Monday in the Turkish border town of Suruc, leaving at least 28 people dead and wounding 100 others, provincial Gov. Izzettin Kucuk told Turkish media.
The explosion occurred at midday at the Amara Cultural Park in Suruc, where a group had gathered calling for more help to rebuild the Syrian Kurdish city of Kobani, CNN Turk reported.
Suruc is about 6 miles from the border and Kobani, the Syrian city that was the scene of intense fighting between Syrian rebels and Kurdish forces and ISIS.
Photos and video taken from the scene show bodies strewn around a park and dazed people at the blast site while emergency teams rush to aid victims.
