ISTANBUL, Mar 31 (Reuters) Seven people were injured when a device exploded in a dustbin near a bus station in the historic area of Istanbul today, Turkish media reported.

CNN Turk television said two of the people had been seriously wounded. A local reporter at the scene said a car had been damaged in the blast.

Militant groups including Kurdish separatists, Islamists and ultra-leftists have carried out attacks on civilians, security and military targets in Turkey in the past.

The explosion coincides with violent clashes between Kurdish protesters and police in Turkey's troubled southeast, which have cost the lives of up to seven people since Tuesday.
