Terrorism: Ankara blast: Turkey’s capital rocked by deadly explosion

At least 28 people have died and 61 are injured after a car bomb exploded near vehicles carrying military personnel in the Turkish capital.

The explosion hit the convoy near military headquarters and parliament buildings in Ankara on Wednesday evening.

Buses carrying military personnel were attacked while waiting at traffic lights at an intersection, the Turkish military said, while condemning the “contemptible and dastardly” attack.

Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag called it an “act of terrorism”.
Ankara governor Mehmet Kiliclar said authorities believe the explosion was caused by a “bomb-laden vehicle.”

News reports said some cars caught fire and dozens of ambulances were sent to the scene. Dark smoke could be seen billowing from a distance.
