Smoked Turkey

OK, that headline is inappropriately facetious.
Yet it is accurate. A liquid propane bomb...basically, your barbecue tank...was exploded in Ankara today, killing three people.
The suspicions are that the Kurds are involved, mostly due to the decades-long conflict Turks and Kurds have had. See, the Kurds want a homeland, but their home would straddle the Turkish-Iraq border (I think it hits Syria, too, but I'm not sure.)
Turks, oddly, have a problem with this.
But...remember the recent flotilla that was blockaded by Israel? That originated in Turkey.
