Turkey’s Minister of Family and Social Services, Derya Yanik, said: “I condemn this treacherous attack that killed a father and his daughter. As a state, we stand by the families of our brothers and sisters who lost their lives and our wounded with all our might. No evil will be able to disrupt our unity and solidarity.”

Earlier, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said those behind the terror attacks “will fail today as they did yesterday and as they will fail again tomorrow”.
