Motorcycle Bomb Injures 10 In Turkey

At least 10 people have been wounded, after a bomb attached to a motorcycle exploded, near a police station, in the Turkish city of Istanbul.

A bomb attached to a motorbike exploded near a police station in southwest Istanbul on Thursday wounding 10 people, the provincial governor said.

The blast occurred in the Yenibosna neighborhood, several kilometers from Istanbul Ataturk Airport, the country’s largest. Television footage showed damaged vehicles, shattered glass and broken windows in the residential area.

Governor Vasip Sahin said all of the wounded were civilians and that investigations into who might be responsible were ongoing. There were no immediate claims of responsibility on Thursday.

Kurdish, leftist and Islamic State militants have all carried out bomb attacks across Turkey in the past.
