Injured foreign tourist is carried to ambulance after explosion in Kusadasi, Saturday
Authorities in Kusadasi, southeast of Izmir, say the blast wounded 14 people, several of whom are in critical condition. Three of the dead were believed to be foreign tourists.

One Turkish account says the bombing was carried out by a woman, but there is no word yet on who plotted the explosion. Several recent attacks in Turkey have been claimed by Kurdish separatist rebels, including TAK guerrillas linked to the Kurdistan Workers Party, PKK.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the attack was the work of terrorists, but he did not blame any specific group.
