 An explosion on Istanbul's popular pedestrian Istiklal Avenue killed six people and injured more than 50, as President Erdogan hinted it may have been a terrorist attack.

A video posted online showed flames erupting and a loud bang, as pedestrians turned and ran away.

The avenue, which is lined by shops and restaurants, was packed with tourists and locals when the blast occurred at around 4:20pm local time (1:20pm GMT). 

Other footage showed several bodies strewn on ground after the explosion and debris scattered across the street.

Four people died at the scene, while two died in hospital - it is feared casualty numbers will increase overnight.

The cause of the blast is not clear and it has not been confirmed if it was a terrorist attack.

Turkish President Recep Tayyib Erdogan denounced the incident as 'a vile attack' and said the perpetrators would be punished.

In a televised statement he said: 'Our nation should be sure that the perpetrators of the incident on Istiklal Street will be punished as they deserve.

'We cannot say for sure that it is a terror attack but there is a smell of it as far as I know. There is a woman who has taken part in the incident.'

He added: 'Efforts to take over Turkey and the Turkish nation through terrorism will not reach its goal.'
