A two bombs attack killed 38 people and wounded 155 others near a soccer stadium in Istanbul, Turkey. The terrorists targeted police officers, killing 30 of them along with seven civilians and an unidentified person.
At least 13 people had been arrested in connection with the attack. 136 people remained hospitalized, including 14 under intensive care.
“We have once again witnessed tonight in Istanbul the ugly face of terror which tramples on every value and decency,” Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack but two officials said suspicions were focused on Kurdish militants.
A video that went viral showed two friends singing and playing the guitar in a terrace when the bombings occurred. After realizing it was some kind of attack they ran away.
