    Turkey starts three-day of mourning after Ankara blasts killed almost 100

    Oct.11, Ankara: Turkey started three days of mourning after two blasts at a peace rally in the capital Ankara killed at least 95 people and injured over 200 others on Saturday, the deadliest ever such attack in Turkey. Among the injured, 48 are in a serious condition.

    The first blast occurred at around 10am, with the second following shortly after, during a peace rally on Saturday organised by several leftist groups, including the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP).

    Authorities are exploring the possibility that the blasts may have been caused by two suicide bombers.

    The government called the blasts a "terrorist act" and angrily rejected allegations that it was to blame.
