Quote from: Ivan
.. Turkish Tourist Deadly Crash reveals Bad Transport conditions ...

Or, perhaps, ..Chechen Terrorism ?

Victims are Russians.
No serious cause has been yet officially established. Moscow asks to make its own Investigation. Turkish extremists were demonstrating at Istanbul in favor even of Chechen Terrrorists who were cowards enough to kidnap and kill Hundreds of Russian Children at Beslan School, September 2004, (etc+). Given all these Facts, nothing can be excluded from the outset.

I.e., Both Risks seem to exist in Turkey : Terrorism(s) + Bad conditions for Transports.
