Al Qaeda Strikes Tourist Beach In Ivory Coast

Armed men attacked an Ivory Coast beach resort Sunday, killing at least 16 people and sending tourists fleeing through the historic town of Grand-Bassam in an attack claimed by al-Qaeda’s North Africa branch.

Bloody bodies were sprawled on the beach and witnesses described horrific scenes as a lazy weekend afternoon was shattered by the West Africa’s latest extremist strike.

In Turkey, a large blast ripped through the heart of Ankara, killing at least 34 people and injuring 125, government officials said. ABC’s Tom Rivers joined us from London.
