This is the aftermath of a bombing that killed at least 11 police officers and injured dozens of people in Turkey. It's bringing attention back to Cizre — a town near the Syrian border.
Cizre is a tense area due to frequent clashes between the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, and the Turkish government.
We should note the U.S. and the European Union agree with Turkey that the PKK is a terrorist group.
