cnn/yahoo/abc

Two powerful bombs exploded near the main train station in Ankara on Saturday morning, causing carnarge, killing at least 95 people and injuring 246 others, in the deadliest attack in the Turkish capital in recent memory.

The explosion, which caused chaos and bloodshed, took place during a peace march involving, among others, the pro-Kurdish HDP, or People's Democratic Party.

The attack also came before national elections scheduled for November 1.

Video showed bodies strewn on sidewalks, with injured people lying on the ground with bystanders trying desperately to help them.

The blasts were so powerful they shook high-rise office buildings at some distance. The death toll is expected to climb.
