A bomb exploded in the Turkish capital of Ankara leaving at least 28 people dead and 61 injured, Turkish officials report.

A vehicle full of explosives was detonated as military buses were passing by, according to the Ankara governor’s office.

The blast happened in an area close to parliament and Turkey’s military headquarters.

Turkey has been hit by a serious of attacks recently, and there have been increasing concerns that the country could be targeted by another big attack.

In October last year,  over a hundred people were killed in simultaneous explosions targeting a peace march in Ankara while last month in January, at least 10 people, mostly German tourists, are killed in a suspected IS suicide bombing in Istanbul.

It is not clear who was behind the latest violence; security sources blamed both so-called Islamic State (IS) and militants from the banned Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), Reuters reported.
