Merkel describes Istanbul attack as a "murderous act"

German Chancellor Angela Merkel describes Tuesday's suicide attack in Istanbul in which 10 people died, eight of them Germans, as a "murderous act."

"The terrorists are enemies of all free people, indeed they are enemies of humanity," she says Tuesday evening in Berlin.

"Precisely this freedom and our determination to act together with our international partners against these terrorists will prevail," Merkel says.

She says there may be other victims: "We cannot know at this time if [the death toll] will stay at this figure."
