Car bomb kills 3, wounds 15 in Turkish capital

A suspected car bomb killed three people and wounded 15 on Tuesday in a neighbourhood of the Turkish capital Ankara where many government buildings are located, Interior Minister Naim Sahin said.

The blast struck the central Kizilay neighbourhood less than a kilometre from the prime minister's office, the headquarters of the chief of general staff and several ministries.

Sahin said a parked car exploded, setting off a chain of blasts as the liquefied petroleum gas tanks of several other vehicles exploded on a busy street. Earlier reports had said 15 people were wounded, 5 of them seriously.
