Turkey is mourning the victims of this week's suicide bombing in the city of Suruc, along the border with Syria. "Turkey cried,"Turkish daily newspaper Milliyet headlined in its Wednesday edition, along with heartbreaking images from the funeral the day before of 28 of the 32 people who died during a meeting of young Kurdish activists discussing the reconstruction of the Syrian town of Kobane.

The funeral was held in the Turkish city of Gaziantep, as relatives of the victims cried over the coffins wrapped in red shrouds with the name of each person written on them. Some of the mourners shouted slogans against extremist group ISIS that is believed to have perpetrated the attack. They also criticized Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan for not fighting hard enough against terrorism. Here is more on the ISIS threat in Turkey from the Associated Press.
