Local officials in Gaziantep believe it was a suicide bombing
A suspected suicide attack has killed at least 50 people and injured around a hundred at an outdoor wedding party in Turkey's southeastern town of Gaziantep near the Syrian border.
President Tayyip Erdogan said it was likely that Islamic State militants had carried out the late-night attack, Reuters reports.
Gaziantep Governor Ali Yerlikaya told state-run Anadolu news agency the explosion was caused by a "terror attack."
Mehmet Erdogan, a ruling party legislator from Gaziantep, said authorities believe it was most probably a suicide bombing.
