Five Injured In Istanbul Blast

At least five people have been injured, following a blast, which targeted a police bus, in the Turkish city of Istanbul.

Five people have been injured by a blast which targeted a police bus in central Istanbul, Turkish media say.

The remote-controlled device was reportedly detonated as the vehicle passed through the Vezneciler district.

The explosion happened during the morning rush hour, near the city’s historic Beyazit Square neighbourhood, a major tourist attraction.

Violence in Turkey has escalated recently as a result of tensions with Kurdish separatists and the conflict in neighbouring Syria.
