Hundreds of protesters marched through Ankara on Monday to commemorate the victims of Saturday's double bomb attack that rocked the Turkish capital, killing at least 128 people and injuring more than 200. Relatives and friends of the victims of the attack took part in the rally, with protesters marching from the Ibni Sina hospital to Ankara railway station. Protesters chanted slogans against the government of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan during the march. Upon arriving at the railway station, located near to the scene of the attack, a number of protesters gave speeches condemning Erdogan. "We will neither forgive nor forget the massacre of October 10 in Ankara," one protester said. Following the speeches, many participants laid flowers at the site of the two blasts, along with pictures of the victims and notes remembering them. At least 128 people were killed and more than 200 injured after two explosions rocked the Turkish capital. The bombs targeted the venue of the 'Labour, Peace, Democracy' rally, which was scheduled to begin at 10:00 local time (0700 GMT). The rally was planned by Turkey's biggest trade union in protest against the Turkish government's policy towards the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK). Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu announced on Saturday three days of national mourning, and said there was evidence that two suicide bombers had carried out the attacks. Selahattin Demirtas, the co-chair of the People's Democratic Party (HDP), said: "This is not an attack against the unity of our state and nation. This is an attack by our nation against our people." The Turkish state have denied any role in the attack and vowed to bring to terrorists to justice.
