US Secretary of State John Kerry condemned the bomb attacks in Reyhanli, a town located in southern Turkey, on the border with Syria.
Secretary Kerry stated: "The United States condemns today's car bombings and we stand with our ally, Turkey. This awful news strikes an especially personal note for all of us given how closely we work in partnership with Turkey, and how many times Turkey's been a vital interlocutor at the center of my work as Secretary of State these last three months. Our thoughts are with the wounded and we extend our deepest condolences to the families of the victims."
The attacks killed 50 people and wounded more than one hundred, making it the largest terrorist attack in Turkish history.
