ANKARA (AA) - A woman who lost her husband in 2015 bombings in the capital Ankara said her pain is "still fresh."
Uygar Cosgun, Mehtap Sakinci Cosgun’s husband, was among more than 100 people killed by twin bomb attacks at a peace rally in Ankara on Oct 10, 2015.
Uygar, a lawyer by profession, attended the rally in Ankara's main train station to meet members of the transport workers union.
Forty-five minutes after he arrived, the bombs went off, Mehtap said.
She said she was shocked with what she saw after arriving at the train station following the attack. “After minutes of efforts, I reached the lifeless body of my husband,” she recalled.
“Actually four years is a long period in terms of the calendar. But we didn’t understand how the time has passed. Because we’re still living the same sorrow as if it happened yesterday,” she said.
Mehtap said many people who lost their loved ones in the 2015 terror attack still couldn’t move on with their lives, and some ended up quitting their jobs.
The families set up an association -- called the 10 October Peace and Solidarity Association -- to support one another and to demand justice.
The attack was attributed to the terrorist group Daesh and carried out by suicide bombers.
