ANKARA: The death toll from twin bombings near an Ankara football stadium has risen to 38 and left 166 people injured, Turkish Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said Sunday.
A total of 30 police, seven civilians and an unidentified person have been killed in the blasts, Soylu said.
The two bombs exploded less than a minute apart on Saturday night, in a coordinated attack on police shortly after a soccer match between two of Turkey’s top teams.
