Explosion in central Istanbul: CNN Turk

A bomb blast has rocked the central Istanbul district of Vezneciler near a bus stop and some people are wounded, CNN Turk reports. 

The broadcaster said many ambulances were sent to the area on Tuesday.

The NTV broadcaster said the explosion occurred as a police vehicle was passing the area.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility but Kurdish militants, Daesh terrorists and radical leftists have all staged attacks in Turkey recently.
