Yes - most of the world news has it before most of Turkey knows about it.
It is in a village in the SouthEast of Turkey... outside the main town of Mardin ( which is beautiful) some 1,500 km east of Bodrum!
Reports still coming in - now 44 dead, it seems one lot of people attacked the others with automatics and grenades - all freely available in an area near the main Government+ Army push against the PKK
Blood feuds and the like mentioned - but conjecture so far as live news shows Jandarma just .. stopping entry to the village.
According to the news this was an engagement rather than a wedding. The couple getting engaged were both killed.....8 people arrested today with the same surname as the family killed. Out of the 26 named dead 21 were from the girl's family (Celebi) 5 from the guy's side (Ari). 16 women and 6 children among those killed.
Unfortunately blood feuds are a way of life in this part of Turkey along with honour killings girls being married off at a very early age and denied the right to a proper education.
Erdoğan has just given a press conference about the event and said that neither morals nor custum is an excuse for killing.
I was watching it on the news last night, 47 people in total, 44 people 3 women of which where pregnant....heres the news,....Police have charged eight suspects over the killing of 44 people at a wedding party in south-east Turkey on Monday, The suspects were among 10 held after the attack in the small village of Bilge Koyu, governor of Mardin province Hasan Duruer told Anatolia news agency. Two other suspects are still being questioned, AP news agency reports. Among those killed in the attack - described as a feud between two families - were the engaged couple, six children and three pregnant women. Some 200 guests were reportedly celebrating in Bilge Koyu, about 20km (12 miles) from the city of Mardin, when the attackers burst in shooting automatic rifles and throwing grenades. Paramilitary police were sent to the village to pursue the attackers, the identities of those arrested have not yet been announced. Unconfirmed reports said the assailants included members of a militia known as the Village Guards, who have helped government troops fight Kurdish separatist rebels in recent years.
If the group, set up in 1984, is found to have been complicit in the killings, it is likely to reinforce calls for it to be disbanded amid long standing accusation of illegal activities.
