Three killed in Istanbul blast


A bomb attack in Istanbul has killed at least three people and injured several others, hours after an earlier explosion in Turkey's capital, Ankara.
The blast ripped through a bus outside a hospital on the city's European side. Ambulances rushed to the scene.

The blasts come ahead of a visit by US President George W Bush for a summit of Nato leaders.

The first explosion took place near a hotel in Ankara where Mr Bush is due to stay for the meeting.

Two people, including a police officer, were injured in that incident.

A radical Marxist group later claimed responsibility for placing a parcel bomb outside the Hilton Hotel in Ankara, Reuters reported.

Turkish television channel NTV said the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party had already carried out minor attacks on official targets in the past.
