Media reports said the authorities were studying the possibility the explosion was caused by a suicide bomber but there was no official confirmation.

Turkey is on edge after a series of deadly attacks by ISIS including a double suicide bombing in the capital Ankara in October that left 103 people dead.

The blast reportedly took place at 8.20am GMT around the Obelisk of Theodosius, a monument from ancient Egypt which was re-erected by the Roman Emperor Theodosius and is one of the city’s most eye-catching monuments.

A German tourist named Caroline added: ‘The explosion was so loud, the ground shook. There was a very heavy smell that burned my nose.
