    The suicide bombing at the Grand Mosque in Turkey’s western Bursa region injured 13 people and killed the female attacker on Wednesday, the country’s health minister said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Turkish Health Minister Mehmet Muezzinoglu said none of those injured was in critical condition, according to the Daily Sabah newspaper.

    The outlet also cited local police sources who said the woman was 25 years old. They said the bomb apparently exploded earlier than intended, preventing a higher death toll.

    The bomb was detonated near the 14th-century mosque shortly after the afternoon prayer, smashing windows in nearby shops. No militant group has yet claimed the attack.
