Yesterday evening, the streets of Ankara were again shattered by a bomb in the city center.  According to the authorities, as of this morning, 37 people had been killed and over 100 people were injured. 

Amnesty International today issued a public statement condemning the attack, saying, “Nothing can justify intentionally targeting civilians or carrying out indiscriminate attacks. Those responsible for the bombing have shown contempt for the right to life and fundamental principles of humanity.”
