SURUC, Turkey, July 21 (UPI) -- A suspect has been identified in the suicide bomb attack that killed 32 people at a cultural center in Suruc, Turkey, as the government vows to increase border security.
Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu announced a suspect was identified ahead of his visit on Tuesday to the scene of the attack. He added that the suspect's international and domestic ties were being investigated.
There is a "high probability" the Islamic State is responsible, Davutoglu added.
"What's necessary will be done against whomever responsible," Davutoglu said. "This is an attack that targeted Turkey."
Hundreds of others were injured in the blast in the garden of the Amara Cultural Center, where about 300 members of the Federation of Socialist Youth Organizations (Sosyalist Gençlik) were meeting.
Witnesses said those attacked were mostly university students and volunteers who came to Suruc to involve themselves in relief work.
Suruc, bordering Syria, is the temporary home of about 20,000 refugees who have fled sectarian and anti-government violence in the nearby city of Kobane, Syria, about six miles from the border.
Davutoglu said security will be increased on Turkey's border with Syria. Cabinet officials will meet Wednesday to discuss additional security measures.
