Bomb On Train Explodes At Istanbul Metro Station, Leaving At Least 1 Dead & 5 Injured

A Mayor in Istanbul, Turkey has said that it was a bomb on a train that cased an explosion at the Bayrampasa metro station which was at first believed to be a transformer issue.

The explosion, occurring on the European side of the city, is said to have left at least one dead.

Bayrampasa is a largely industrial and residential area in which the metro runs above ground – as opposed to the majority of Istanbul’s metro which runs underground.
