After the deadly bombing at Ankara’s main railway station, Turkey speculates who was behind the attack. The government and Kurdish parties blame each other, but others think that Islamic State is responsible – a frightening prospect!
Turkish forces will target Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria and possibly Iraq, Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said. The threat comes as military and rebel allies captured the Syrian Kurdish enclave of Afrin.
