New York, June 8 (Just Earth News): United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has condemned on Tuesday’s terrorist attack in the centre of Istanbul, which claimed the lives of at least 11 people and injured dozens more.

“The Secretary-General hopes that the perpetrators of this despicable terrorist attack will be swiftly identified and brought to justice,” said a statement attributable to  Ban’s spokesperson.

The explosion was reportedly caused by a car bomb targeting a police bus, according to the statement.
