A suicide bomber affiliated with Islamic State is thought to be responsible for a blast near Istanbul’s grandest tourist attractions that has killed 10 people, most of them German. “I condemn the terror incident in Istanbul, assessed to be an attack by a suicide bomber with Syrian origin,” the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, said in a televised speech. “Unfortunately we have 10 dead, including foreigners and Turkish nationals … There are also 15 wounded.” The prime minister, Ahmet Davutoğlu, said the bomber was a foreign member of Isis and vowed that Turkey would find those linked to the bomber and punish them.
