CCTV footage captures moment of Izmir blast

This video shows the moment suspected Kurdish separatists detonated a car bomb in the coastal city of Izmir after being stopped at a checkpoint.The blast killed a police officer and a courthouse employee, and wounded 10 others. Police shot dead two attackers, and are looking for a third.Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Veysi Kaynak said a much larger attack was apparently being planned based on the weapons found at the scene. He also said the attack would not stop Turkeys military involvement in Syria and Iraq.Authorities have already been conducting raids across the city earlier this week in a hunt for suspects related to the new year attack on an Istanbul nightclub that left 39 dead.

Tokyo politicians hit back at Donald Trump tweet about Mexico factories

Tokyo has defended Toyota Motor Corporation, saying that Japanese carmakers have and will continue to contribute to employment in the US. This comes after President-elect Donald Trump singled out the automaker and threatened to slap punitive tariffs on its Mexico-built cars.Trump has repeatedly hit out at US companies for using lower-cost factories abroad at the expense of jobs at home. He has slammed US automakers, including Ford which this week scrapped a planned $1.6bn (£1.3bn) Mexico plant. Jan 6, 2017
