Bombings in Turkey - level 3

Bombings in Turkey - level 3

16-10-2015 15:00

Thousands of people have taken part in protests in Turkey, one day after twin explosions killed at least 95 people outside the capital's main train station. The suspected suicide bomb attack left hundreds injured, 65 remain in intensive care, while pro-Kurdish politicians put the death toll as high as 126.

Protestors today chanted anti-government slogans while some accused President Erdogan and the ruling AK Party of being responsible for the violence.

The Turkish government has described yesterday's bombing in Ankara as a terrorist attack, the most deadly of its kind on Turkish soil.

Today, a senior government official said parliamentary elections set for November 1st will go ahead as planned, but said security will be stepped up at election rallies and the election will be held in a secure way.

Difficult words: suspected (when people are not completely sure), death toll (the number of dead people), chant (to say or sing something together), accuse (to say that somebody did something wrong), step up (to increase, to make greater), rally (a mass meeting).
