The suicide vest used in the bomb attack that killed at least 50 people and wounded dozens of others at a wedding ceremony in the southeastern Turkish province of Gaziantep late Saturday, has been found, according to local officers.

The terrorist attack took place in the Beybahçe neighborhood of the province's Şahinbey district.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack. However an extensive investigation was opened into the incident.



Turkey has been the target of terrorist organizations, particularly the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and affiliated groups such as the Democratic Union Party (PYD) and its armed wing, the People's Protection Units (YPG), and The Kurdistan Freedom Hawks (TAK) along with Daesh.

Previously the PKK conducted attacks in Elazığ, Van and Bitlis provinces, which left dozens of people, including many civilians, dead.
