At least 27 dead in Ankara attack - CNN Turk, citing governor | Reuters

ANKARA At least 27 people were killed and 75 more wounded in a blast in the Turkish capital Ankara on Sunday evening, broadcaster CNN Turk said, citing the local governor.

CNN Turk had earlier said 25 had been killed. Later it said that two more people had died en route to hospital. A senior security official told Reuters the blast was believed to have been caused by a suicide car bombing.

Last month, a car bombing a few blocks away killed 29 people.
