    Relatives of people killed in Saturday's bombing attack mourn outside a hospital's morgue, in Ankara, Turkey, Sunday, Oct. 11, 2015. The two suspected suicide bombings killed 95 people and wounded hundreds in Turkey's deadliest attack in years.

    Scuffles broke out Sunday in the Turkish capital as police used tear gas to prevent pro-Kurdish politicians and other mourners from laying carnations at the site of two suspected suicide bombings that killed 95 people in Turkey's deadliest attack in years.

    Turkey declared three days of mourning following Saturday's nearly simultaneous explosions that targeted a peace rally in Ankara calling for increased democracy and an end to the renewed fighting between the Turkish security forces and Kurdish rebels.

    There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attacks, but Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Kurdish rebels and ISIS militants were the most likely culprits.
