Swede Injured in Turkey Blast

A woman with dual Swedish-Turkish citizenship was injured in Monday’s bomb explosion in the Turkish city of Antalya. Three Turks died in the blast, which a Kurdish separatist group has claimed responsibility for.

The attack came the day after nearly 30 people were injured in a series of explosions in the seaside town of Marmaris and Turkey’s biggest city, Istanbul. The Swedish Foreign Ministry says the Swedish-Turkish woman is being treated for minor injuries in an Antalya hospital. No other Swedes are known to have been injured.

There are more than 1000 Swedish tourists in southern Turkish seaside resorts. The foreign ministry warns travellers to Turkey from getting too close to demonstrations and to be generally careful, but has not issued any recommendations against travel to Turkey.
