In Istanbul, security measures at the Russian consulate have been tightened after an explosion rocked the city centre. It has been reported TASS.
The diplomatic mission is located on Istiklal, a pedestrian tourist street, where the emergency occurred, resulting in 38 injuries. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan later clarified that the death toll had risen to six and the number of injured to 53.
Turkish authorities have taken additional measures to ensure the security of the Russian Consulate General. A police cordon has been put in place leading to Istiklal Street, but the pedestrian path has already been opened in some areas.
An explosion took place on Istiklal Street on November 13 in the afternoon.

Tourists and local residents started running away from the blast site after hearing the pop. The country’s authorities do not exclude the version of the attack.
