3 reported dead in Istanbul bomb explosion

At least three people have been injured after a bomb exploded in a suspected terror attack on the Turkish capital Istanbul.

The device was detonated near a bus station in the Mecidiyekoy district of this city tonight.

The area was sealed off by cops as emergency services arrived at the scene.

The injured civilians were taken to a nearby hospital.

The explosion followed a warning from the US Embassy earlier Saturday of "credible threats" of attacks in tourist areas of Istanbul and Antalya.
