Three people have been killed and several injured in an attack on members of Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) during an election campaign event in the southeast of the country.
Members of AKP, including MP Ibrahim Halil Yildiz, came under attack in Suruc, just across the Syrian border from Kobane on Thursday, Rudaw reported citing state-run Anadolu Agency.
"There are wounded people. First aid has been given to them. There was need for an air ambulance, it has been dispatched," said Turkey's Health Minister Ahmet Demircan, adding that "we will share information as we receive it."
Three people were reportedly shot dead and at least eight more injured.
