Inspectors appointed to probe Turkey blasts

Turkey’s government says it has appointed two chief civil inspectors and two chief police inspectors to investigate the blasts in the Turkish capital which killed 95 people.

A statement from the government’s crisis coordination center also says that 160 people hurt in Saturday’s blasts were still hospitalized, with 65 in serious condition.

The statement says a total of 508 people sought medical treatment following the explosions —Turkey’s deadliest attack in years.

The two explosions occurred seconds apart outside Ankara’s main train station as hundreds of activists gathered for rally to call for increased democracy and an end to the renewed violence between Kurdish rebels and Turkish security forces.
