Suicide Attack in Turkey G20

At least four policemen were reportedly injured on Sunday in southern Turkey when an Islamic State militant blew himself up in an apparent suicide attack.

“‘IS’ jihadist blows himself up, injuring four police in southern Turkey: reports (sic),” AFP tweeted.

The attack happened amidst the visit of world leaders like Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Turkey to take part in the G20 meet. Modi arrived in Antalya city of Turkey on Sunday morning for the annual G20 Summit.

United States President Barack Obama, Russian President Vladimir Putin, British Prime Minister David Cameron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Chinese President Xi Jinping are also to attend the summit.

The incident comes on the heels of terror attacks in parts of Paris, which left at least 128 dead. The Islamic State, or Isis, took the responsibility for the attacks, saying they were “the first of the storm”.
