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.
