Turkey's Erdogan says Diyarbakir attack shows 'ugly face' of 'cornered' militants

"This shows terrorism's ugly face again. The determination of our security forces will, God willing, put an end" to terrorism, Erdogan said in a speech to the Brookings Institute. He is in the United States for a nuclear security summit.
