Car Bomb in Turkish Capital Ankara Leaves at Least 37 Dead

The blast has also left more than 100 injured.

— -- A car bomb explosion in the Turkish capital of Ankara has left at least 37 people dead and over 100 injured, according to Turkey's health minister.

Today’s attack targeted civilians at a bus stop, Interior Minister Efkan Ala said.

Health Minister Mehmet Muezzinoglu said 30 victims died at the scene, while the other four died at hospitals.

Muezzinoglu also said 125 people were wounded, with 19 of them in serious condition.

The explosion occurred on the city's main boulevard, Ataturk Bulvari, which is near the city's main square, Kizilay, The Associated Press reported.

Two days ago, the U.S. Embassy said there was a "potential terrorist plot to attack Turkish government buildings and housing located in the Bahcelievler area of Ankara." The U.S. Embassy said Americans should avoid the area.

It was not immediately clear whether the U.S. Embassy's warning was related to the attack.
