Suicide Bombing Kills One In Istanbul

At least one person has been killed, following a suicide bombing, at a shopping centre, in the Turkish city of Istanbul.

An explosion at a major tourist shopping area in the Turkish city of Istanbul has killed at least one person, Turkish media has said.

Local media reported that it was a suicide bomb attack that injured another six people.

The area where the bombing occurred, Istiklal Street, is reportedly often crowded at weekends.

Last Sunday, an attack in the capital, Ankara, killed 37 people. A Kurdish militant group claimed that attack, saying it was in revenge for Turkish military operations against Kurds.

Last month, a bomb attack on a military convoy in Ankara killed 28 people and wounded dozens more.
