8 suspects charged in Turkish attack

An official says a court has charged eight suspects accused of killing 44 people in an assault on an engagement ceremony in southeastern Turkey.
Hasan Duruer, the governor of Mardin province, said Wednesday that two other suspects are still being questioned.
The dead in Monday's attack included the betrothed couple, six children and three pregnant women. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said the attack was "the result of a feud between two families."
There was no information on the identity of the suspects, but authorities have said some are related to the victims.
