At least 10 people have been injured in a bomb attack at a beach resort in Turkey.

Local media say the small bomb exploded at Kemer in Antalya, a resort popular with German, Dutch and Russian tourists.

The blast caused panic, but the injuries were all described as light and only needing emergency out-patient treament. The bomb had been buried in sand so most damage was done by flying pebbles.

“It exploded just as I was coming out of the sea. Everybody was shocked, no-one could move for 10 seconds,” said one tourist.

No-one has claimed responsibility for the blast.

The Antalya governor’s office said the cause of the explosion is not known.
