A funeral procession for victims of a bomb attack in Turkey’s Gaziantep has turned into an anti-government demonstration, with participants slamming Turkish government for failure to protect security of citizens.

Hundreds of angry mourners chanting “Murderer Erdogan” gathered for the funeral of 12 of the victims of the bombing that killed over 50 people in a wedding ceremony in Gaziantep late on Saturday.

The terrorist attack was carried out when the assailant detonated explosives among the crowd. The huge explosion also inflicted injuries to more than 90 people, including the bride and groom.
