Twin blasts in Turkey

Why?! People killing each other, this is insane. Yet another blast in Turkey, outside the Istanbul soccer stadium. 29 people were killed out of which 27 were Police special forces and 2 were civilians. Fortunately most of the fans has already left the stadium after the match was over, and hence there weren’t many civilian casualties. But at least 166 people have been wounded.

The first blast was a car detonation that went off outside the facility known as Besiktas stadium. The second blast was from a suicide bomber a few moment later. The panic and screaming filled the streets and the pavements were littered by broken glasses of nearby buildings.

Turkey is a partner in the US-led coalition against the Islamic State and its armed forces are active in neighboring Syria and Iraq. It is also facing a renewed conflict with an outlawed Kurdish movement in the southeast.
