(London Telegraph) Two bomb blasts outside a football stadium in Istanbul have left 29 dead and 166 injured, the country's interior minister has said.
The explosions took place two hours after a match between two of Turkey's leading teams, Besiktas and Bursaspor. Of those who died, 27 were police officers.
"Unfortunately we have martyrs and wounded," said the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in a statement. One of the blasts was caused by a car bomb and the second was a suicide attack at Macka Park nearby, 45 seconds later.
