Turkish authorities have imposed a temporary blackout on distribution of any material concerning the aftermath and investigation of the bombing in Istanbul today, they say, due to the ongoing inquiry and security issues.
This affects ALL news coverage in online print, photos and video being sent back into Turkey.
Clients are advised to seek their own legal advice if they intend to transmit material already supplied by the AP and ongoing news coverage of this specific attack and its aftermath, back into Turkey.
This has been the AP's guidance in previous instances after the Turkish government imposed such a blackout a few hours into an unfolding attack.

9. SOUNDBITE (German) Christian Gross, German tourist:
"We stayed in Motel Double Tree, approximately 200 to 300 metres (656 to 984 feet) away (from the blast site). And we heard the attack, our window had been open and my wife and I were already awake. And we immediately said (to one another) that it must be a bomb attack, can't have been just thunder or an airplane or something. Only after that we heard what happened in the news. But given the current situation here, we knew that it was possible that something would happen. This kind of thing can happen anytime here in Istanbul."
