Mourners attend the funeral of the victims Duygu Tuna, Ismet Seker and Cemil Yildiz, who were killed in a suicide bomb attack two days before in the southern Turkish town of Suruc, on July 22, 2015 at Gazi district in Istanbul. A suicide bomber, identified as a 20-year-old Turk, blew himself up on July 20 in the small town of Suruc across the border with Syria from the embattled town of Kobane, a battleground between Kurds and IS fighters. The explosion killed 32 people and wounded about a hundred others, most of them young Kurds who had gone to Suruc to prepare for an humanitarian aid mission in Kobane. AFP PHOTO / YASIN AKGUL
