Here is eye witness testimony from one of the injured victims from Norway at link www.independent.co.uk...



Two hours ago:


Jostein Nielsen, a 59-year-old Salvation Army officer, told Norway's TV2 that he and his wife were sightseeing in the Turkish city when the bomb went off.


"I first heard a bang that I think is what detonated the bomb," Nielsen said. "After that came the real bang. I felt that my knee stopped working. There were human remains all over the place."


He was speaking from a hospital bed in Istanbul. His wife, Magna Vaaje Nielsen, was not injured.

"It was a great shock," she told TV2. "One does not think that such things will happen when you are sightseeing."
