Twin bombs kill 30 at pro-Kurdish rally in Turkish capital
By Ece Toksabay and Orhan Coskun ANKARA (Reuters) - At least 30 people were killed when twin explosions hit a rally of pro-Kurdish and leftist activists outside Ankara's main train station on Saturday in what Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan called a terrorist attack, weeks ahead of an election. A Reuters reporter saw bodies covered by flags and banners, including those of the pro-Kurdish opposition Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), with bloodstains and body parts scattered on the road. "Like other terror attacks, the one at the Ankara train station targets our unity, togetherness, brotherhood and future," Erdogan said in a statement, calling for "solidarity and determination".
