Bomb attack hits central Istanbul

Percussion bomb wounds at least three people and puts central Istanbul on alert.

     

    Percussion bombs produce a loud noise, disorientating people in the vicinity.

    A double bomb attack had killed at least 17 people in a crowded area of Istanbul in July. The first blast was caused by a percussion bomb and the second, a more powerful explosion, ripped through the crowd.
