Ankara Bombing

Turkish police tear gas mourners laying carnations at the site of bombings in Ankara that killed 97

Turkish police fired tear gas to disperse mourners who were laying flowers at the site of Turkey’s deadliest ever terror attack this morning.

At least 97 died and 247 were wounded when suspected suicide bombers set off two explosions during a peace rally in Ankara yesterday and two high-ranking Turkish security sources say ‘initial signs’ suggest ISIS were behind it.

Protesters clashed with riot police in Istanbul last night as they took to the streets to denounce the attacks. And today, police clashed with demonstrators and pro-Kurdish officials at the scene of the disaster near Ankara’s main train station.

They held back the mourners, including the pro-Kurdish party’s leaders Selahattin Demirtas and Figen Yuksekdag, insisting that investigators were still working at the site.
