Two terrorists carried out a bomb attack in front of Turkey’s General Directorate of Security in Ankara on Sunday, injuring two police officers, authorities said.
The attackers arrived in a light commercial vehicle in front of the building’s entrance at about 9:30 a.m. local time, Interior Minister Ali Yerlikaya said in a statement posted on X, previously known as Twitter. One assailant blew himself up and the other was “neutralized,” Yerlikaya said.
The blast was heard near the parliament and other government buildings, causing panic among the residents and workers. The police cordoned off the area and launched an investigation into the incident.
