Attack on police van kills 11, injures 36

A car bomb attack in central Istanbul has killed 11 people and injured another 36.

The attack, aimed at a police van, was the fourth major attack in Turkey’s largest city this year and happened near the city’s historic Beyazit Square neighbourhood, a major tourist attraction, and an Istanbul university building.

According to Turkish media four people have been arrested. No terrorist group has claimed responsibility although the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) have claimed previous attacks on security forces.

The explosives were remotely detonated as the bus passed through the busy Vezneciler district at the morning rush hour, Istanbul’s governor, Vasip Sahin, said.
