At least six people were killed and 53 injured when an explosion rocked a busy pedestrian street in central Istanbul.
Ambulances rushed to the scene on the crowded Istiklal Avenue, which was quickly cordoned off by police. The Beyoglu district area of the city was packed with shoppers, tourists and families.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said initial signs pointed to a “terrorist” attack.
“It could be wrong if we say for sure that this is terror, but according to the first indications… there is a smell of terror there,” Erdogan said at a televised news conference.
