At least 8 killed in Istanbul blast
A large explosion in central Istanbul has left at least 10 people killed and 15 others injured, its governor’s office says.
There is no official word on the cause of the blast, but Turkey’s Haberturk TV said it may have been caused by a bomber.
The blast took place in Istanbul’s historic Sultanahmet square, a major tourist attraction in Turkey’s most populous city.
Istanbul has been the target of bomb blasts before.
