WASHINGTON President Barack Obama called Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday to offer condolences on a suicide car bombing this week that killed at least 28 people, the White House said.

In a daily press briefing with reporters, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the two leaders also discussed the situation in Syria.

Earnest said more details on the call would be released later Friday.
