Turkey: 8 suspects in wedding shooting detained

Turkey's Interior Minister Besir Atalay says security forces have detained eight people suspected of involvement in an attack on a wedding in southeastern Turkey.
Atalay says the attack killed 44 people, correcting an earlier death toll of 45. Atalay says six of the dead were children.
Masked assailants attacked the wedding ceremony in Bilge village, near the city of Mardin, with automatic weapons.
Atalay says authorities have ruled out a terrorist attack and says the assault was most probably the result of a blood feud between rival families.
