ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkey's Interior Ministry says two bomb explosions apparently targeting a peace rally in the capital Ankara has killed 30 people and injured 126 others.

The ministry said the explosions occurred as demonstrators were starting to gather for the rally Saturday. It condemned the attack which it said "targets Turkey's democracy and peace."

The explosions occurred minutes apart near Ankara's train station as people gathered for the rally organized by the country's public sector workers' trade union. The rally aimed to call for an end to the renewed violence between Kurdish rebels and Turkish security forces.

It was not clear if the attacks, which came weeks before Turkey's Nov. 1 elections, were suicide bombings.
