"The cost shouldn't be so high," Turkish daily Milliyet writes on Monday's front page, quoting and featuring a picture of Ä°zzettin Çevik, the blood-covered school teacher who became one of the symbols of the toll of Saturday's deadly bombings in Ankara.
Çevik, who was photographed by Reuters amid the carnage, lost his daughter and sister when two bombs were detonated outside the entrance of the capital's central railway station. He was first reported to have died from his wounds but survived, CNN Türk reports.
The attack killed at least 97 people, though some sources say the number of victims stands at 128, with hundreds more wounded.
"The price of peace should not be so heavy and painful," Milliyet quoted Çevik as saying.
No group has claimed responsibility for the deadliest terror attack in the country's history, but Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu says the prime suspect is ISIS, Hürriyet reports. The attack is believed to have been executed by two suicide bombers outside the city's main railway station, where activists were gathering before a planned protest against the violence between the Turkish government and Kurdish groups.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is hoping the upcoming Nov. 1 elections will restore his party's parliamentary majority, has already ruled out postponing the vote.
