Istanbul – Four people were killed and 20 wounded, three of them seriously, in a suicide bombing that ripped through a busy shopping street in Istanbul on Saturday, the city’s governor said.

The bomber was also killed in the attack on Istiklal Caddesi street, governor Vasip Sahin was quoted by local media as saying, but it was not immediately clear whether the assailant was included among the four victims.
