Several people have been wounded in an explosion in the Maltepe district of Istanbul, according to reports.

Initial reports suggest the blast is thought to have come from a package sent by courier to an electronics company.

Maltepe is a commercial and residential district on the Asian side of the city.

Turkey has been on high alert in recent weeks after a spate of attacks by ISIL, Kurdish and far-leftist militants.
