Twin explosions outside Ankara’s main train station on Saturday morning killed at least 86 people and wounded up to 190 in an attack targeting a peace rally in Turkey’s capital city.
The peace rally and march was organized by unions, NGO’s and the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) to protest against the conflict between the state and the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in southeast Turkey.
A video caught the moment the first bomb went off.
A line of men and women were holding hands and singing as people milled in the background waving banners with anti-violence slogans, when the huge blast rocked the crowd.
Hundreds of protesters then clashed with police after officers blocked off a road keeping ambulances from aiding victims of this morning’s bombing.
