Scuffles Break Out As Police Hold Back Turkish Mourners
ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkey is appointing a four-member panel to investigate yesterday's suicide bombings that killed 95 people in the capital, Ankara.
Two chief civil inspectors and two chief police inspectors will handle the task. The government says 160 people remain hospitalized with injuries.
Meanwhile, a Turkish news agency reports that police have detained 14 suspected members of the Islamic State group in the central Turkish city of Konya. It's not known if that's related to the attacks.
Scuffles broken out today in Ankara as police prevented pro-Kurdish politicians and other mourners from laying carnations at the site of two suspected suicide bombings.
Turkey declared three days of mourning following Saturday's nearly simultaneous explosions that targeted a peace rally attended by activists, labor unions and members of the pro-Kurdish party.
Police insisted investigators were still working at the site.
