Several people have been injured in an explosion which rocked the car park of a chamber of commerce building in the tourist resort of Antalya in southern Turkey, according to Independent.

The Dogan news agency broadcast footage showing at least five ambulances in front of the building, surrounded by dozens of people.

An eyewitness who was at the building told CNN Turk the blast smashed windows and left people bloodied and a Dogan reporter said one vehicle was blown apart.

The cause of the explosion was not immediately known but NTV television and other reports said it may have been caused by a car bomb left in the car park.

Antalya Chamber of Trade and Industry head Davut Cetin told CNN Turk there were no fatalities in the explosion.
