targeting tourists but can no longer guarantee safety here in turkey. >> certainly turkey has been battling with them for decade now. at this point, which group is a bigger threat to turkish security isis or these kurdish fighters? >> reporter: i think the problem for turkey is that there is conflict all around it, as well as inside it. a cease-fire with those kurdish militants fell apart in the middle of last year, which has unleashed a blood letting on both sides. then also remember that turkey shares a 500 mile long border with syria and we have seen that country deadly civil war fill across that border time and time again. so this bombing is, obviously, very upsetting to everyone here in turkey. but it's most certainly wasn't surprising for many people. >> holly williams in istanbul,
