Tensions Build in Turkey After Bomb Kills 100 People in Ankara

Saturday marked the deadliest attack in Turkey's recent history with close to 100 people killed in Ankara. Mostly Kurds, the victims were attending a pro-peace rally organized by opponents of Prime Minister Erdogan's Justice and Development Party (AKP). It's still unclear who is behind the bombing, but the government blamed the Islamic State, while left-wing groups said the government is neglecting public safety. We'll get the latest on the bombing, and discuss implications of instability in Turkey for the region.
