American Tourist Killed in Turkey

Turkish authorities have confirmed the death of an American woman who went missing in Istanbul and was killed by an apparent blow to the head, but questions about the mysterious ordeal remain. Sarai Sierra, a 33-year-old mother of two from New York City, was last heard from on January 21, the day she was due to fly home from vacation—her first trip abroad. Turkey’s state-run news agency said 15 people have been detained in connection with her death.
