Dozens of Kurdish people and pro-Kurdish activists rallied in front of Dresden's opera house on Sunday to pay tribute to the victims of Saturday's attack on Ankara which left at least 95 dead and more than 245 injured.

The protesters held pictures of the victims of the attack and signs condemning the Turkish government that included slogans such as "IS + Erdogan = terror" and "Erdogan bombed peace."

At least 95 people were killed and more than 245 left injured after two explosions rocked Ankara on Saturday morning. The blasts rocked the area near Ankara Central railway station, Turkey's busiest train hub. The bombs targeted the venue of the 'Labour, Peace, Democracy' rally, which was scheduled to begin at 10:00 local time (0700 GMT). The rally was planned by Turkey's biggest trade union in protest against the Turkish government's policy towards the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
