Tragedy struck again in the Turkish city of Ankara after a bomb laden car exploded close to a police station in the eastern province of Van (near the Iranian border) killing three people and injuring 40 others.
Moments after the bomb exploded, rescue operatives thronged the scene of the incident as ambulances were seen rushing in to attend to those who were wounded.
According to a local broadcaster, it was not really clear how many civilians and police were among the dead and wounded.
Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim confirmed the attack on live TV but could not give details of the attack which no group immediately claimed responsibility for.
