A suspected member of the Islamic State (IS) group has killed 10 people, at least nine of them German tourists, in a suicide bomb attack in the Turkish city of Istanbul, officials say.


They say the Syrian national carried out the attack in the Sultanahmet district, near the famous Blue Mosque.

Fifteen people were wounded, many of them also German.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey was the “top target for all terrorist groups in the region”.

His country, he added, was “fighting against all of them equally”.

The explosion rocked the tourist-heavy area of Sultanahmet at about 10.20am local time on Tuesday. President Erdogan said the bomber was thought to have links to Syria.

Photographs appear to show bodies on the ground inside a police cordon.

In a statement, German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said he “must unfortunately assume” there were German nationals among the injured and “cannot rule out” they may also number among the dead.


A Turkish government official later reported that nine German tourists had been killed.

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this barbaric and cowardly act of terrorism,” he said. “It was aimed at the heart of the Turkish metropolis Istanbul, which we all regard highly for its cosmopolitanism.

“In these hours we stand firmly by Turkey’s side.

“We mourn the victims of this murderous attack. Our thoughts are with the relatives and all those who remain in a state of uncertainty.”

Turkish news agency Dogan reports that six Germans, one Norwegian and one Peruvian tourist are among those hurt.

Explosion outside the Prime Ministers Office in Oslo – Norway

An explosion has blown out most windows of a government building housing the prime minister’s office and left several people injured, news agencies say.

Friday’s blast blew out most windows on the 17-storey building housing Jens Stoltenberg’s office, as well as nearby ministries, including the oil ministry, which was on fire.

Camilla Ryste, a government spokeswoman, told the Associated Press news agency Stoltenberg was safe.

A Reuters correspondent, Walter Gibbs, said he counted at least eight injured people. The cause of the blast was unknown but the tangled wreckage of a car was outside one building.

And an Associated Press reporter said newspaper offices in the area were also damaged and smoke could be seen drifting in the streets.

The reporter said he saw a young man with a bleeding leg being helped away from the area. It was not immediately clear whether there were other injuries.

Kristina Overn, a Norwegian journalist, said people were surprised that Norway had been targeted.

“People are really surprised. I am very surprised. People are shocked that this could happen in Oslo,” she told Al Jazeera.

“People are quite calm, they are not running around or anything. But people are quite shocked. I think most Norwegians consider themselves to be outside of incidents like this.”
