ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan condemned the suicide bombing in Manchester on Tuesday (May 23) that killed at least 22 people and wounded 59 at a concert by U.S. singer Ariana Grande. Speaking at a graduation ceremony in Istanbul, Erdogan said Turkey shares the grief of Britain and British citizens who faced the deadliest militant assault in the country since four British Muslims killed 52 people in suicide bombings on London's transport system in July 2005. Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack at the Manchester Arena and said it was carried out with an explosive device planted at the concert, according to a statement the militant group posted on Telegram. Turkey and Britain are in talks to tighten security cooperation to prevent Islamic State militants in neighbouring Syria from reaching Europe.
