Two explosions have rocked a road junction in the centre of the Turkish capital Ankara, killing at least 20 people and injuring dozens of others, local media reported.

The explosions took place several minutes apart, with the first going off at around 10:00am (0700 GMT), according to local Dogan news agency.

The explosions occurred near a train station where people were gathering for a peace march to protest against the conflict between the state and Kurdish fighters in southeast Turkey.

Eyewitnesses told the AFP news agency several bodies were seen lying on the ground.
