20 Wounded in Bomb Blast in Popular Resort Town of Turkey

Turkish authorities say 20 people have been wounded in a bomb blast at a resort in western Turkey.

The explosion occurred Sunday in the Aegean coastal town Cesme, a popular tourist destination near the port city of Izmir. There has been no claim of responsibility for the blast.

The regional governor said two foreigners were among the injured, but did not identify their nationalities.

In April, a bomb attack in the nearby resort town Ksusadasi left a police officer dead. A Kurdish separatist group claimed responsibility for that blast.
