NATO offered its support to Turkey after a recent bombing killed dozens in a Turkish town near the Syrian border. The bombing, thought to be perpetrated by members of the Islamic State, highlights how Turkey is now grappling with conflicts on two fronts: from ISIS forces along the border and from Kurdish militants domestically. Some experts say Turkey's announcement that it can't continue talks with Kurdish militants marks the end of a three-decades-long peace effort. We take a closer look at the latest from the region.
