A woman runs away following a suicide bombing in a major shopping and tourist district in central Istanbul on March 19, 2016. Five people were killed and at least 36 were wounded, according to Reuters.
This is the fourth suicide bombing to hit Turkey this year. Just about a week ago, a car bomb attack in Ankara killed 34 people and injured 125.
The bombing hit part of Istiklal Avenue, a long pedestrian zone lined with global brand name shops and foreign consulates, and just a few hundred meters from an area where police buses are usually parked.
