Turkish Prime Minister has promised to boost security along the country's border with Syria, after 30 people were killed by a bomb in the town of Suruc.

Investigators think the blast was caused by a female suicide bomber from the Islamic State group.

Correspondents say Turkey is cracking down on the militants, after previously being accused of ignoring them.

But the blast triggered violent protest in Istanbul, with police using water cannon, teargas and rubber bullets.
