An explosion near the hotel in the Turkish capital where U.S. President George W. Bush is due to stay on Saturday night was caused by a "percussion
bomb" and nobody was hurt, a hotel official has told Reuters.
Apparently, percussin bombs are not uncommon in Tukey. Mostly noisemakers, it appears the device's intention may have been to say, "we can get
you." By the way, I forget why Bush is traveling to Turkey. Anyone?
