Dozens have been killed in a new terror attack in Turkey’s capital city, Ankara. The apparent car bombing took place in one of the most crowded parts of Kizilay neighbourhood in the centre of town, while people were waiting at bus stops to go home. We sourced and verified this footage of the moment of the 6:48PM bus stop bombing, which shows the intensity of the blast.

The attacks come as it has been revealed that the US Embassy in Turkey provided an early warning on March 11 2016, two days preceding the attack. It is as yet unclear whether the warnings and present attack are directly related.
