Ankara explosions leave more than 80 dead

Two explosions at a peace rally in the Turkish capital Ankara have killed at least 86 people and injured 186, according to officials, the BBC reports.

The blasts took place near the city’s central train station as people gathered for a march organised by leftist groups.

The attack is the deadliest of its kind in modern Turkish history.

Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemned the “loathsome attack that targeted our unity and our togetherness”.

Government officials are investigating reports that a suicide bomber was behind at least one of the explosions.
