Turkey too faces the terrorism of the times.
A bomb hidden in a bicycle exploded injuring seven individuals in the Etiler District of Istanbul, Turkey this Thursday. The explosion occurred during the rush hour period. A police academy and shopping center were the sites that came within the range of the bomb blast which created panic among the onlookers.
According to authorities, it was a medium-sized bomb. No one has yet accepted responsibility for the cowardly act. Suat Kilik, a member of the Justice and Development Party, said that “the aim of the attack was to prevent Turkey from discussing democracy, elections and a new constitution.”
