Following the terror attacks that killed at least 95 people and wounded more than 200 at a peace rally in Turkey’s capital Ankara on Saturday morning, Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz offered his condolences to Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

In a telephone call between the two leaders, King Salman reiterated Saudi Arabia’s solidarity with Turkey “in the fight against all forms of terrorism.” the Saudi Press Agency reported.

The twin bombings, the deadliest attack in Turkish history, were set off by suspected suicide attackers in a crowd of leftist and pro-Kurdish activists at an anti-government peace rally.

The attacks, near Ankara’s main train station, left bodies of dead demonstrators strewn across the ground.
