Israeli tourists currently in Istanbul have been warned to stay in their hotel rooms  and not explore the city, following a bombing earlier today in a popular tourist area, according to Hebrew media reports.

Istanbul, just a two-hour flight from Tel Aviv, is a popular tourist destination for Israelis. The Foreign Ministry said it was not aware of any Israelis wounded in the attack, although many were nearby when the explosion went off.
