First up today, turmoil in Turkey. It's a country that joins southeastern Europe with southwestern Asia. And for the past year, it's been struggling with political upheaval, domestic violence and international terrorism.

Turkish government officials say the ISIS terrorist group which is based partly in neighboring Syria is likely behind the latest major attack.

It happened in an outdoor wedding celebration in the Turkish town near the Syrian border. A suicide bomber killed at least 51 people and wounded dozens of others. Turkey and the Kurdish ethnic group that lives in the region had given support to the fight against ISIS. So, observers say ISIS might have planned Saturday's attack in revenge.

Earlier this summer, suspected ISIS suicide bombers killed 44 people at an airport in Istanbul. Turkish government has also fought against an armed rebel group for decades. It was blamed for bombing Turkish police forces last week and the nation has been under a state of emergency after an attempted coup over the summer. It did not succeed in overthrowing the government but hundreds were killed before that violence came to an end.

Next story today: the Centers for Disease Control, a U.S. government health organization, is telling pregnant women to avoid to areas of Miami, Florida, including part of Miami Beach. Why? The Zika virus has been transmitted there. It's carried most extensively by mosquitoes, though human to human transmission is possible.

For many people, Zika is not a major threat. Most people who get it won't even show symptoms. But if a pregnant woman gets infected, Zika can cause severe birth defects or miscarriage of the baby.

Last month, Florida's governor announced the first local transmission of the Zika virus in the continental U.S. It was in an area north of downtown Miami. The CDC announced a travel warning for pregnant women and heavy mosquito control measures, including spraying insecticide were taken.

That seemed to clear up the problem in that area.
