In the wake of Saturday’s horrific bombing attack on a Peace Rally in Ankara, that claimed the lives of 128 people and wounded 500, people from around the world have taken to the streets to show their solidarity, express their outrage at the terrible injustice and send a message of condolences to the victim’s families.
We’ve compiled the following images and videos from the various solidarity demonstrations held around the world.
