Blast was reported in Ankara near parliament building, according to Turkish media reports.
Turkey’s interior minister says a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device in front of the ministry building in the Turkish capital, wounding two police officers.
Ali Yerlikaya said two attackers were responsible for the explosions in front of the ministry building. One of them blew himself and other was “neutralised”, the minister said.
Al Jazeera’s Sinem Koseoglu, reporting from Istanbul, said that security measures have been tightened around the parliament building and around the interior ministry building.
“Parliament is coming back today after its summer break. All parliamentarians, including the president, were expected to be at the Parliament in the afternoon around 2pm,” she said.
