ANKARA, Turkey — The death toll following an explosion in Turkey’s capital, Ankara, has risen to 34.

Health Minister Mehmet Muezzinoglu said 125 people were injured, with 19 of them in serious condition.

The blast ripped through a busy square in the heart of Ankara, the official Turkish news agency Anadolu reported.

Interior Minister Efkan Ala says Sunday’s attack won’t deter the country from its fight against terrorism. He confirmed the blast as a car bomb that targeted civilians at a bus stop.

He says authorities have obtained evidence but won’t make an announcement on those responsible until the end of the investigation.
