Reports from February 17 confirm that at least 20 people have lost their lives in a large explosion in Turkish capital Ankara.
The Turkish authorities said a vehicle packed with explosives was detonated in the vicinity of some passing military buses.
More than 60 other people sustained injuries, many of them serious, in what the country´s deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag has termed “an act of terrorism”.
Witnesses city-wide reported hearing the blast and large smoke-plumes were seen rising over the area, which is said to be close to the parliament and military headquarters.
Turkey´s premiere Ahmet Davutoglu is reported to have cancelled his scheduled trip to Brussels.
Until now, no group has claimed responsibility for the latest blast, which is one of a spate of attacks by militants in the unstable region.
