Details are still scarce, but reports are coming in of a bomb blast at a wedding hall in Gaziantep, Turkey, that has left many dead. The city is near the border of Syria.

 

The Sun is reporting at least 8 killed and 30 wounded in the blast, which many are reporting was the work of a suicide bomber. The Sun adds that Gaziantep governor Ali Yerlikaya has called the incident a “terrorist attack.”

Not surprisingly, the number of reported casualties has begun to climb.
