More info:

"Istanbul Governor Huseyin Avni Mutlu said seven people were injured, none of them seriously. NTV television cited ruling party official Suat Kilic as saying a police officer was among the injured."

It seems 7 people have been injured, and no one has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Is this a PKK attack, or something more sinister.

This explosions goes hand in hand with the explosions in China. Any correlations?

Casualties are reported by Al-Jazeera as I write this.

The explosion has occurred in Istanbul, the Turkish capital, in a bus stop. It doesn't look like a targeted attack, therefore can be said to be a terror attack. Although we can never know, the target could have been in the bus stop.

More reports coming out as I write..
