Developing -- Istanbul, Turkey: A suspected car bomb detonated outside a soccer stadium injuring at least 20 people, according to a report.

The explosion was detonated several hours after a match between Turkey's top teams, as reported by Reuters quoting interior Minister Suleyman Soylu.

The streets surrounding Vodafone Arena, a new structure, were sealed off by the police. The stadium is home to the Besiktas soccer team.
