During that explosion, a Greek woman was among those injured, the Greek Foreign Ministry said.

"According to the latest information from the Turkish authorities, among the injured from yesterday's explosion in Istanbul, there is a Greek woman, who was slightly injured by a piece of glass and is being treated out of danger in a hospital in the city," the ministry announced in a statement.
