18 February 2016, Nirapad News: A large explosion in the Turkish capital, Ankara, has left at least 28 people dead and 61 injured.

Quoting Turkish officials, the BBC reported the explosion on Thursday.

A vehicle full of explosives was detonated as military buses were passing by, according to the Ankara governor’s office.

The blast happened in an area close to parliament and Turkey’s military headquarters.

Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag called it an “act of terrorism”.

Large plumes of smoke were seen rising from the area and witnesses said the blast was heard all over the city.

Some of the victims were civilians.
