Turkish police deployed tear gas to disperse people who were marching to commemorate the victims of a terrorist attack in Ankara that claimed the lives of 102 people near Ankara’s main train station on Oct. 10, 2015, the Cumhuriyet daily reported on Tuesday.

Ten protestors were arrested by the police, according to Cumhuriyet.

The Associated Press reported on Tuesday that police only allowed relatives of the attack’s victims, civil society representatives and politicians on the scene and intervened when crowds intending to commemorate the attack approached the station.

On Oct. 10, 2015, two suicide bombers targeted a peace rally outside the train station. The bombers reportedly belonged to a Turkish cell of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).
