Bomb attacks on the British consulate and the HSBC bank headquarters in Istanbul have left at least 25 dead and about 400 injured.
The attacks are thought to have been carried out by suicide car bombers, and the UK foreign secretary said they bore all the hallmarks of al-Qaeda and associated organisations.

Istanbul is a city in chaos, the BBC's Steve Bryant says.

There is collapsed masonry, shattered windows, burned out cars and general scenes of confusion at the two sites. Much of the city's phone network has been cut.
Condolences to the families and colleagues of our countrymen and women killed in this atrocity. Sympathies to the Turkish people, caught in this outrage

Another landmark event, in "The war against Terror" This whole thing is starting to pan out like "Rainbow 6"

Let's see Bush and Blair mutually backslap now, or can we expect more "getting tough on terror" statements from Bush and his glove puppet? Will you be shaking Adams and McGuiness's hands now?

We got sidetracked in Iraq, now let's get back on the road, and start getting stuck into terrorists, and the Nations/individuals that support them.

Just heard our glorious leader giving a rousing speech on defeating terrorism. Lots of 'striking wherever and whenever we can', 'crushing', 'eliminating' etc, etc. Fabulous, stirring stuff.

Bit like how you sorted out PIRA, eh Tony?
