Ankara residents advised to stay indoors

Authorities are warning residents in the Turkish capital to stay indoors after torrential rain and sleet  flooded homes and underpasses causing traffic havoc.

Television footage showed workers in diving suits trying to rescue a van loaded with gas canisters stuck in one underpass and elsewhere cars were seen sliding on one highway, where sleet had piled up some 10 centimetres (4 inches) thick.
