Five people have been killed in Turkey, after a minibus taking them to a beach in Kusadasi exploded.

The blast is believed to have been caused by a young female suicide bomber. It's suggested that a teenage Turkish girl who had boarded the bus with holidaymakers travelling from the town centre to Ladies Beach had detonated a bomb in her lap.

The explosion tore off the roof and sides of the bus. A British woman was killed and five British toutists injured. An Irish woman, two Turks and another unidentified passenger also died and a total of fourteen people were wounded.

The bombing prompted a warning from the Foreign Office to Britons going to Turkey to be vigilant.
