43 killed, 247 wounded. The attacks get more and more horrific. They rounded up 13 suspects moments ago in my old Kumkapi neighborhood in the Sultanahmet section of Istanbul. While we lived there for 13 months, I always noticed how it was a hotbed for Kurdish nationalism, Uzbek gangs, Russian and Kazakh prostitution is mind-blowingly rampant, and also a key transit point for human trafficking into Europe for Africans and Dominicans.
Kumkapi Is some wild, anything-goes area
