A suspected car bomb has rocked the streets near Istanbul’s Besiktas sports stadium, killing at least 13 and injuring dozens more. The sound of an explosion was heard on the European side of the city this evening.
The car bomb was said to have targeted a riot police bus stationed near the stadium of Istanbul’s Besiktas football club. The blast in central Istanbul wounded at least 20 people after the end of a match between two of Turkey’s top teams, Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said. Riot police officers are believed to be among the injured. The explosion was heard after Besiktas’ 2-1 win at home against Bursaspor tonight. TV footage showed what appeared to be the wreckage of a burned out car and two separate fires on the road outside the stadium.
