NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks are mixed on Tuesday as investors assess the latest deal news and company earnings reports. Twitter rose after announcing that it would lay off staff as it strives to turn a profit. Ryder System, a transportation company, fell sharply after lowering its profit forecast for the third quarter.
Turkish investigators on Tuesday sought to firm up suspicions Islamic State jihadists were behind a double suicide bombing in Ankara that killed 97, as President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was to break days of silence over the blasts. Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Monday said IS was the prime suspect behind Turkey's deadlist ever attack which saw bombs packed with ball bearings ripping through a crowd of leftist and pro-Kurdish activists at an anti-government peace rally in the capital. Three days after the bloodshed, Ergodan -- who has come under fire over alleged security lapses -- was to make his first public remarks on the attacks at a joint news conference with visiting Finnish President Sauli Niinisto.
