Five people died on Saturday morning after a suicide bomb detonated in a busy tourist shopping area of Istanbul, Turkey. Among those five, Reuters confirmed that two held dual citizenship with the U.S. and Israel.
A Turkish member of the Islamic State militant group was reportedly responsible for the blast, which also killed another Israeli citizen and an Iranian citizen. Another 36 people were injured.
“We have determined that Mehmet Ozturk, born in 1992 in Gaziantep, has carried out the heinous attack on Saturday in Istanbul. It has been established that he is a member of Daesh,” said Turkey’s Interior Minister, Efkan Ala.
The latest bombing brings the number of people killed in suicide bombings this year in Turkey up to 80. The blast was captured on security footage nearby:
