Blast hits Turkish cultural building in Sweden - media | Reuters

STOCKHOLM An explosion severely damaged a Turkish cultural association building in a Stockholm suburb, Swedish media reported on Wednesday.

All the windows of the centre were blown out, newspaper Aftonbladet reported on its website, quoting police, adding there was no information about whether there were injuries.

Twenty-eight people were killed and dozens wounded in Turkey's capital Ankara earlier on Wednesday when a car laden with explosives detonated next to military buses near the armed forces' headquarters, parliament and other government buildings.
