Turkey says attack will not draw it into Syrian war

Group with ties to Syria blamed

ANKARA, Turkey — Turkey’s prime minister vowed Sunday his country will not be drawn into Syria’s civil war, despite twin car bombings the government believes were carried out by a group of Turks with close ties to pro-government groups in Syria.

The bombings left 46 people dead and marked the biggest incident of violence across the border since the start of Syria’s bloody civil war, raising fears of Turkey being pulled deeper into a conflict that threatens to destabilize the region.
