ISTANBUL - At least eight people were killed after an explosion rocked a central Istanbul square on Tuesday, and several others were wounded, Turkey's Haberturk television said.

The blast may have been caused by a suicide bomber, Haberturk said, without citing its sources. There was no official word on the case of the blast, which took place in Istanbul's historic Sultanahmet square, a major tourist attraction in Turkey's most populous city.
