At least five people have been killed and 10 more wounded in a large explosion in the Turkish capital of Ankara.
Al Jazeera’s Zeina Khodr, reporting from Gaziantep, said initial reports suggested a car bomb had caused the explosion on Wednesday night and that the target had been Turkey’s military personnel.
Ankara’s governor confirmed the initial death toll, saying five were killed.
“There are reports of casualties,” Khodr said, adding that initial details were sketchy.
“This is really in the heart of the Turkish capital – clearly a message to the Turkish government.
“This is the fourth major explosion in Turkey in the past few months.”
There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
