Bomb attacks killed 97 people during the demonstration in Ankara

Dozens of people have been killed and injured in two blasts at a peace rally in the Turkish capital, Ankara.

This is one of two violent explosions at a train station in the Turkish capital Saturday.

At least 97 people are killed and over 180 another are injured in the attack. It confirms the Turkish interior minister. The government believes that it was a terrorist attack.

The attack takes place a few weeks before the country will hold elections on a new national assembly.

The incident occurred in connection with a peaceful protest march against violence that has broken out between Turkey’s government troops and Kurdish rebels in south east Turkey.

It is still unclear what caused the explosions, but several media reports about a possible suicide attack.

Turkish people give responsibility for today’s attack to the policy of president Erdogan.

President Erdogan and his party have for years invested heavily in various terrorist groups in the fight against President Bashar al-Assad on behalf of the Syrian opposition.

Terrorist groups operating in Syria have set up three bases in southern Turkey to train foreign fighters. These groups have received military training, communications equipment and been armed with the support of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, US and British intelligence in the fight against Bashar al-Assad.
