Bomb in Turkish Capital Kills One; Suicide Probed

A bomb exploded at a cafe in the center of Turkey’s capital Ankara on Tuesday, killing one person and injuring another, and police were investigating whether it was a suicide attack, Turkish authorities said. “One person was killed after a bomb exploded,” Ankara state prosecutor Ahmet Mutlu said after visiting the scene. Asked if police suspected it was a suicide attack, Mutlu said: “It is being investigated.” The blast, which happened after 9 a.m. (2 a.m. EDT), rocked the three-story cafe frequented by students in the city’s main commercial district Kizilay. Twisted metal, glass and shards of wood were scattered on a walkway next to a busy street. Witnesses said a young woman was seen entering the cafe’s toilet where the blast is thought to have occurred, according to the state-run Anatolian news agency. Only a few customers were in the cafe at the time of the blast, witnesses said. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. Full Story
