You just can't make this stuff up.

A GROOM accidentally killed three relatives at his wedding in Turkey yesterday when he fired into the air with an assault rifle in celebration.

The Anatolia news agency reported eight other people were wounded at the incident at the village of Akcagoze in the south-eastern province of Gaziantep.

The groom unleashed a volley of rapid aerial shots with an AK-47 rifle to celebrate his nuptials, but quickly lost control of the weapon and accidentally raked the guests with bullets, the report said.

His father and two of his aunts died in hospital.

The groom was arrested.

Turks are notorious for breaking out into gunshots to celebrate weddings and sports victories, a practice that has caused many deaths and which authorities have so far failed to curb.

I don't think it's paticular to any nation, although it seems to be a common practice in the middle east.
Many years ago, I lived in Arizona for a time and on new Years Eve, folks would go outside and fire their guns in the air. Scared the crud out of me. What goes up, must come down.

yeah a common practice, like cutting off hands, stoning women for alledged adultry. They have the tollerance that this country hopes for.

I would have shot him to for making me listen to that crap music too....J/K.. Why would you give a child a loaded gun? What @$$holes.
Instead giving them intel we should give them gun safety lessons.

I don't think that is common practice there either. Any more than cops shooting cops is here. It does happen though.
