Antalya Blast Rocks Commercial Center

Turkish media have reported an explosion in a parking lot in the resort city of Antalya. The city’s mayor, Menderes Turel, said 10 people were wounded outside the city’s chamber of commerce building. Turkey’s private Dogan News Agency reported the morning blast on Tuesday but did not report on the cause. Multiple news outlets showed ambulances being dispatched to the area, AP reported. An eyewitness at the scene told CNN Turk the blast smashed windows and left people bloodied and a DNA reporter said one vehicle was destroyed. Antalya is a major tourist resort on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast. In August, two rockets hit a commercial facility near a provincial resort town, but caused no casualties. Turel told private broadcaster NTV that “10 to 12 people were slightly injured by flying glass” in the explosion at the Antalya Chamber of Commerce and Industry building. He said it was too early to say whether the blast was a bomb or some sort of accident. Over the past year, Turkey has been hit by an increasing wave of attacks from the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group as well as Kurdish insurgency in the southeast.
