ISTANBUL (AP) — Turkey's president says the suicide bomber who attacked a wedding party, killing dozens, was between 12 and 14 years old. Recep Tayyip Erdogan (REH'-jehp TY'-ihp UR'-doh-wahn) gave the information in a live nationally televised address in front of Istanbul city Hall. He blamed the Islamic State group for the attack late yesterday, which killed at least 50 people and wounded dozens more in a southeastern city.

CITRONELLE, Ala. (AP) — Alabama Investigators say it may take days to process a horrific crime scene in the city of Citronelle, about 30 miles northwest of Mobile where five adults were found dead and a four-month-old infant was still alive. Officials say the dead included a pregnant woman. Capt. Paul Burch of the Mobile County Sheriff's Office says suspect Derrick Dearman of Leakesville, Miss., surrendered and confessed.

GONZALES, La. (AP) — Floodwaters in south Louisiana have mostly receded, leaving residents with mud and muck to clean out of homes before they even begin to think about repairs. An estimated 60,000 homes have been damaged, but assessments are continuing so the number may change. The Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness says 102,000 people have registered for federal help.

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — The painstaking task of damage assessment is gathering momentum now that crews have made major progress against a big wildfire east of Los Angeles. Officials say they expect the count to go beyond the current estimate of at least 105 residences and 213 outbuildings destroyed. The fire is 73 percent contained and many evacuees are being allowed to go home.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The latest campaign financial reports to the Federal Election Commission show big-money Democratic donors flocking to presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's cause. But the same can't be said for the efforts by major Republican donors on behalf of Donald Trump. They're also not rushing in to try to save GOP control in the Senate, while the Democrats are making a major push there. Clinton continues to outpace Trump in campaign spending.
