Turkish police have detained 15 people over a suicide bombing in the northwestern city of Bursa where a woman injured eight bystanders as she blew herself up near the city's main mosque, Turkish media said on Thursday.

The TRT and CNN Turk television stations quoted Interior Minister Efkan Ala as giving the total and saying evidence pointed to a link with a militant group, but gave no details.

The attack on Wednesday was the fifth suicide bombing in a major urban center in Turkey this year.
