At least five police officers and two civilians have been injured in a bomb attack on a police station in Turkish city of Istanbul.

The blast hit the police station building in the Sultanbeyli neighborhood early on Monday morning, the state-run Anadolu Agency reported.

Part of the three-storey building collapsed in the ensuing blazes that engulfed the police station.

It also inflicted some damage on the neighboring buildings and some 20 cars parked in its vicinity.

The area was quickly cordoned off by police to stop the gathering of curious onlookers.
