In an apparent suicide bombing in the center of Istanbul, at least 32 people were wounded on Sunday, police said
Those injured included 15 police officers and 17 civilians; five police officers are in serious condition, CNN reported. The bomber tried to get into a parked police van, but when he failed he detonated the bomb just outside of the vehicle, according to Istanbul police chief Huseyin Capkin.
The explosion happened at Taksim Square, which is a popular spot for street demonstrations and has shops and restaurants that are usually packed, MSNBC reported.
