Turkey: Border Attack Meant to Entangle County in War

Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan responded to a car bombing on the Turkish-Syrian border which took place on Tuesday, saying he saw the attack as an attempt to entangle his country in Syria's violent civil war.

"There is no doubt that someone is taunting us in order to involve us in the Syrian crisis, but we do not feel threatened," said Erdogan, adding, "Turkey will take all necessary steps and will show restraint on such things without responding."
