Thousands March in Istanbul in Honor of the Victims of the Bombing in Ankara

97 people were killed and over 400 injured after two bomb blasts tore through a pro-Kurdish rally in the Turkish capital of Ankara.  Peaceful demonstrators were holding hands and dancing when the bombs went off.  It is the deadliest terrorist attack in Turkish history, and the third-deadliest in Europe.

Thousands of protesters bravely took to the streets hours after the bombing in honor of the victims.  Turkish police violently attacked the peaceful protesters, but they refused to leave the streets.  No organization has claimed responsibility for the attack yet, but the Turkish government had declared it believes it to have been a terrorist attack.
