Istanbul, Oct 12 : Two days after suicide bombings in Ankara, which killed at least 97 people, Turkish doctors halted all non-emergency health services in protest on Monday.

"We are sorry, angry and mourning," Xinhua quoted Turkish Medical Association (TTB) as saying in a press release. "We are going on two-day strike from October 12 to 13 across the country."


"The doctors will attend funerals of those who lost their lives in Ankara," a TTB official said.

Istanbul Technical University also cancelled lectures on Monday to mourn the death of a student in the Ankara bombing.

The death toll could rise further as scores of the injured are still in critical condition.

Two suicide bombers are suspected of being behind the biggest ever terrorist attack in Turkey's history.
