Car bombing kills at least 27 people in Turkey's capital
A car bombing in Turkey's capital has killed at least 27 people and wounded around 75 others.
The blast occurred next to several bus stops near a park on Ankara's main boulevard, Ataturk Bulvari, close to the main square, Kizilay.
It was reported that a car, believed to be laden with explosives, blew up close to a bus. Several vehicles then caught fire.
The area is close to government offices, including ministries.
Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu is convening an emergency security meeting.
The deadly blast - the third in the city in five months - came just three weeks after a suicide car bombing in the capital targeted buses carrying military personnel, killing 29 people. A Kurdish militant group claimed responsibility for that attack.
Yesterday's attack came two days after the US Embassy issued a warning about a potential plot to attack government buildings and housing in one Ankara neighbourhood and asked its citizens to avoid those areas.
