(photos) 97 killed in twin bomb blast in Turkey today


97 people were killed and over 
400 others injured after two powerful 
bombs went off near the main train 
station in Ankara, the Turkish capital 
this morning where a peace rally calling 
for an end to the renewed conflict 
between the Kurdish PKK organization 
and the Turkish government.

About 14,000 people were in the area 
as at the time of the explosion. Two 

suicide bombers are believed to have 
caused the blasts. Following the attack, 
for which no group has claimed responsibility, bodies lay in front of 
the station on Hipodrum Street and paramedics tended to the injured as a 
police helicopter circled overhead. 
Bodies strewn on sidewalks, with injured people lying on the ground.
