People's Democratic Party (HDP) press office has on Tuesday released a statement in which the party apologized for its co-chairman Selahattin Demirtaş's earlier statement that the death toll in Ankara twin blasts was 128.
The party said, "In the information statement we shared on October 11, Sunday based on our Crisis Desk's data, we informed [the public] that 128 of our fellow countrymen lost their lives in the Peace Rally Massacre," adding that their mistake led to a misinformation of the public for which they offered their apology.
The twin suicide bombings in Ankara – the deadliest attack in modern Turkish history – were set off by two suspected suicide attackers in a crowd of leftist, pro-Kurdish and union activists at a peace rally.
Saturday's blasts near Ankara's main train station left at least 97 people dead and injured more than 200, dozens of whom are still in intensive care.
