Times Of Turkey Thousands of people gathered in the streets of Ankara on Sunday near the site of two deadly bomb blasts that tore through crowds taking part in a peace rally in the capital a day earlier.

Thousands of people on Sunday attended a rally in Ankara under heavy security to remember the at least 95 people killed in twin bombings in the Turkish capital.
The demonstrators filled Sihhiye Square in central Ankara, close to the site of Saturday’s blasts outside the city’s train station, with some shouting anti-government slogans.

The rally was called by  the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) — the same groups that had called the peace rally targeted in Saturday’s attack.

At least 95 people have been killed and 246 others wounded in Saturday’s twin bombings that targeted a peace rally in Turkish capital Ankara, the prime minister’s office has said.

Forty-eight people remain in intensive care, according a statement from the Prime Ministry Coordination Center late Saturday.

Fifty-two of those who were killed have been identified, it added.

Police say they have found body parts belonging to the two apparent bombers and are working on identifying them. The authorities are also checking security camera footage from the area.

The Ankara officials also said the method of the attack and the amount of explosives used resemble the deadly Suruc bombing from July 20 this year. Dozens of people were killed in the southern Turkish town when a bomb blast struck a gathering of pro-Kurdish activists.
