Turkey’s capital Ankara will have alot of political traffic on Monday following the deadly terror attack that claimed at least 97 lives on October 10.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will meet separately with Turkey’s top officials including Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, chief of National Intelligence Organization Hakan Fidan, head of General Staff Hulusi Akar and Minister of Internal Affairs Selami Altinok.

The meetings were planned to be held on Thursday at presidential complex in Ankara. However, they have been rescheduled after the twin bombings.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Davutoglu on Monday will meet with his party’s -Justice and Development Party (AK Party)- center board. Later on the same day, the Council of Ministers will have a meeting presided by Davutoglu at Cankaya, Ankara.

The twin suicide bombings hit Turkish capital Ankara when thousands of people gathered in front of the city’s main train station where a “peace march” was set to begin on October 10.

At least 97 were killed and nearly 500 injured after the deadly attack for which no group has claimed responsibility.

The blast was the deadliest terror attack in modern Turkish history, surpassing the 2003 attacks in Istanbul that killed 60 people and were carried out by al-Qaeda.
