Two explosions have hit the area outside the Ankara railway station where thousands had gathered for a peace rally organised by workers' unions KESK, DİSK, TMMOB and TTB.

Reports say over 30 people have lost their lives and some a hundred have been wounded.

As the survivers and members of Health Union SES try to help the wounded and rush them to hospitals, ETHA reporter Fuat Uygur, who is at the scene, said the explosions were likely caused by suicide bombers, according to initial observations.

One of the two explosions occurred during the passage of Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) demonstrators who had just started marching, and the other during the passage of pro- Partizan-Kaldıraç demonstrators.

Bodies of the casualties have been covered with the flags and banners carried by the people who had gathered to demand peace today against the ongoing war and conflict in the country.

In the meantime, police have fired tear gas amid the crowd at the scene where bodies of many have people have scattered around in a blood bath.
