A bomb-laden motorbike was blown up in Istanbul’s Yenibosna neighbourhood in the afternoon hours on Thursday, leaving at least 10 people wounded.
According to the initial reports of security forces, the bomb was blown up with a remote control device. Policemen are looking for a suspect wearing a black jacket and black helmet around the blast site.
According to the eyewitnesses, the blast was so massive that it shook the ground even at the Yenibosna Metrobus Station which is approximately 500m distant to the blast, and gunshots were heard after the blast. The initial footage of the blast scene showed up broken glass pieces and damaged cars.
After the blast, the governor Vasip Şahin made a statement, saying that 10 people were wounded due to the blast, and fortunately none of their conditions are serious.
No terrorist group has claimed the attack yet. According to authorities, either PKK or ISIS may possibly be behind the attack.
