Two suicide bombers reportedly blew themselves up after being stopped by the police on 8 October in Ankara, Turkey.

Initial reports suggest that the terrorists had planned to carry out a car bomb attack. No public casualties have been reported as yet.

This comes months after 28 people were killed and 61 wounded by a car bomb targeting the Turkish military in the heart of the capital Ankara. The blast struck a convoy of military vehicles.

Further details awaited.
