    Strong blast kills at least 33, injures 75 in Turkish capital Ankara's Kızılay Square

    At least 33 people were killed and 75 others were injured after a strong took place in the Turkish capital Ankara's Kızılay Square on Sunday, Ankara Governorate announced.

    A bomb-laden vehicle was reportedly exploded between two passenger buses near crowded bus stops located at the heart of the city. Many vehicles were reported burning at the scene.

    Several buses were also reported completely or seriously burned.

    Fire units and ambulances were rushed to the scene while the square was closed for the possibility of a second explosion. Smoke could be seen rising above the area from a distance 2.5 km away, witnesses say.

    Reports from the area also suggest perpetrators targeted riot police. A Turkish official later said that initial findings suggest PKK or a PKK-affiliated terrorist organization carried out the attack.

    Sunday's bombing in Ankara was the 3rd attack that targeted Turkish capital in recent months.
