A SERIES of explosions have rocked the Turkish capital Ankara, according to reports, just a day after a Russian jet was downed.
The blasts caused a number of casualties and spread panic across the city, which was targeted by Islamic State militants in October when bombings killed more than 100 people.
Emergency services were alerted to the explosions, which happened at 12.20pm local time.
The incident was thought to have occurred at a factory producing dry ice, with reports suggesting it had been triggered by a gas explosion when a carbon dioxide tanker was unloading.
Turkish troops were deployed to the scene along with firefighters and police, but investigators found no evidence of a coordinated attack.
It comes a little more than 24 hours after a Russian jet was downed by Turkey after it buzzed Turkish airspace.
The Turkish embassy in Moscow was pelted with rocks and eggs by crowds angry at the incident.
The bombing appeared to target a trade union rally and was the deadliest in modern Turkish history.
