A strong explosion has occured this Tuesday morning in Antalya, a seaside resort in the South of Turkey. The origin of the explosion is not determined yet. It happened in the parking of a building in the Chamber of Commerce of the city. 10 or 12 people have been hurt in this explosion by glass fragments, declared Menderes Türel the mayor of the town. He declared that the explosion was probably accidental and the prognosis vital is not engaged. A vehicule has been totally destroyed and 4 others were damaged. Turkey has been hit by this explosion but during the last year, this country has been often linked to the Islamic State, because of it geographic proximity with zones under the control of Daech (Iraq, Syria). The explosion blew out the windows of the building and caused cracks in the facade. It’s too early to say that it’s linked to a terrorist attack but the hypothesis is not ignored.
