Turkish PM: Can't yet verify if wedding bomber was child, or linked to Islamic State

Turkish authorities are not yet in a position to verify the organization responsible for a weekend suicide bombing that killed more than 50 people at a wedding, or whether the perpetrator was a child, the prime minister said on Monday.

His comments were an apparent backtracking on the identity of the suspect. President Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday that the bomber was likely a child between the ages of 12 and 14 and said evidence suggested Islamic State was behind the attack.

Speaking to reporters in Ankara, Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said: "We are not in a position to verify anything about who the perpetrator was - if it was a child, an adult, or for which organization."
