ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkey’s prime minister says there are strong signs that the two attacks at a peace rally in Ankara were suicide bombings.

Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu also declared a three-day official mourning for the 86 victims of the two explosions as well as for people killed in terror attacks since July.

The explosions occurred Saturday as hundreds of people were gathering for the peace rally by leftist and Kurdish activists.
