Officials say an explosion near a courthouse in Turkey’s Aegean coastal city of Izmir was caused by a car bomb.

The secretary general of the city municipality has given the information to the media.

At least four people are thought to have been killed.

The state-run Anadolu news agency says police shot dead two attackers after the blast.

They are actively looking for a third.
