Obama At G20: What Happened In Paris Is ‘An Attack On The Civilized World’

President Obama on Sunday called the coordinated carnage in Paris “an attack on the civilized world.”

Speaking at a press conference with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan during the G20 summit in Antalya, Obama linked the Paris attacks to last month’s bombings in Ankara that killed more than 100 people.

“As was true with the terrible attacks that took place in Ankara, the killing of innocent people based on a twisted ideology is an attack not just on France, not just on Turkey, but it’s an attack on the civilized world,” Obama said.
