Turkey’s President condemns Kurdish independence referendum

President Erdogan threatens harsh measures if the push for independence continues. Turkey fears the emergence of an independent Kurdish state on its border will stoke separatist feeling in its own Kurdish minority. Also, police in Israel say three people have been killed in an attack by a Palestinian gunman who opened fire on security personnel, and a Canadian bridegroom saves a drowning boy on his wedding day.
