Islamic State extremists have been blamed for suicide bombings that killed more than 120 in Turkey.
The nation began three days of mourning yesterday for the victims of two blasts at a peace rally in Ankara.
It’s thought more than 128 people were killed and at least 250 were injured in the deadliest terror attack in Turkey’s history.
Prime minister Ahmet Davutoglu said two bombers were responsible for Saturday’s atrocity and security sources believe Isis jihadis were probably responsible.
A source said the attack had striking similarities to a suicide bombing in July in Suruc near the Syrian border. They added: “All signs indicate the attack may have been carried out by Isis.”
Saturday’s bombings, which came seconds apart, happened at a protest against escalating violence between Turkish forces and Kurdish militants in the south-east of the country.
Trouble broke out yesterday in Ankara as police fired tear gas and prevented grieving relatives and pro-Kurdish politicians from laying flowers.
A group of about 70 mourners were eventually allowed to visit the scene.
Funerals of some of the victims took place yesterday, including Korkmaz Tedik, of the Turkish Labour Party.
The Queen has sent a letter to the Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan saying she was “shocked and saddened”.
She wrote: “My thoughts are with all those affected by these terrible events.”
Turkey recently opened its bases to US aircraft launching air strikes on Isis in Syria and the country has also carried out strikes on the extremists. (Dailyrecord)
