ISTANBUL – A car bomb exploded at a soccer stadium in Istanbul, Turkey. The number of casualties cannot be determined at this time.
This attack is the latest in a string of attacks by the Islamic State and Kurdish militants in recent years – including an attack on Ataturk airport resulting in 50 deaths in June.

Turkey, held up as an example of a secular Arab state, has also been the target of a military coup during the summer.
