A large explosion in the Turkish capital Ankara has caused several casualties, according to reports.
NTV television said the blast took place near a park at Ankara’s main square, and that several cars caught fire.
People have taken to social media to post pictures from the scene – and the footage obtained by The Press and Journal is believed to have been captured on CCTV at the scene. Although this has still to be confirmed.
Several ambulances and police cars have been sent to the scene.
NTV television said the blast took place close to bus stops near a park at Ankara’s main square, Kizilay.
The news channel said the explosion occurred as a car slammed into a bus, suggesting that the blast may have been caused by a car bomb.
The explosion came just three weeks after a suicide car bombing in the capital targeted buses carrying military personnel, killing 29 people.
A Kurdish militant group which is an offshoot of the outlawed Kurdish rebel group, the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, claimed responsibility for that attack.
Police sealed off the area and pushed onlookers and journalists back, warning there could be a second bomb.
