An explosion at an outdoor wedding party in the southern Turkish city of Gaziantep has killed at least 30 people and injured 94 more, the region`s governor says.

The Turkish government has called it a “terror attack” and suggested it was carried out by a suicide bomber.

Gaziantep is 64km (40 miles) from the Syrian border.

Deputy Prime Minister Mehmet Simsek called the attack “barbaric” but said: “God willing, we will overcome.”

It happened in a part of the city where many university students live, after a wedding party spilled out on to the streets. The blast was heard across town.
