A suicide bombing outside a police station in the Turkish city of Istanbul has killed a policeman and wounded seven people.

Some of the injured are reported to be in a critical condition.

Images broadcast on Turkish TV showed damage to the main entrance of the building in the western suburb of Sultangazi.

No organisation has yet said it carried out the attack.

"First the attacker threw a grenade, then blew himself up at the entrance of the police station," Istanbul police chief Huseyin Capkin told reporters.

"The policeman working at the entrance was killed."

The attacker was about 25 years old, Mr Capkin said.

In May, a policeman died in a suicide bombing in the central province of Kayseri. The Kurdish rebel group, the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), said it carried out that attack.

Fighting between the army and the PKK has escalated in the past year, especially in the south-east of the country.

On Monday he Turkish military said it had killed 25 Kurdish rebels during a recent offensive in northern Iraq.

Blair's really done a terrific job as peace envoy to the Middle East, even without actually going there too often. I vote for him to take up a residential post in - say Damascus or Baghdad.

Hi tigger,

Tony has a better job, he is advisor to Ed Milliband........Honest.!!! He was interviewed the other day on T.V. and his hair is almost white......he must have been dying it when he was PM, probably adopting the role of elder Statesman now.
