RT News - January 12, 2016 (17:00 MSK)

Breaking news this hour: One of Istanbul's tourist hot spots is targeted by a suicide blast, with the majority of those killed, said to be foreigners. The Turkish President calls the bombing a terror attack, and says the perpetrator was from Syria. That's as foreign governments issue warnings to their citizens in Turkey. The German city of Leipzig witnesses a huge far-right march AND a pro-immigration rally at the same time, following a string of sexual assaults linked to migrants on New Year's Eve - hundreds of arrests made. 

Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you. Unfortunately, the comments made before the change have been lost due to a technical problem. We are working on restoring them, and hoping to see you fill up the comment section with new ones. You should still be able to log in to comment using your social-media profiles, but if you signed up under an RT profile before, you are invited to create a new profile with the new commenting system.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and looking forward to your future comments,

RT Team.
