A bomb blast blew apart a minibus in a tourist resort, injuring 10 British tourists and 11 Turks, the local police chief said. The explosion happened Sunday night in the popular Mediterranean resort town of Marmaris. There were two other blasts at the same time on the main boulevard in Marmaris, an area that is lined with bars, clubs, cafes and restaurants, private Dogan news agency said, but there were no reports of injuries in those blasts. Earlier reports had said that there were 16 injured in the blasts. There was no immediate explanation for the discrepancy.
