Israel evacuated its consulate in Istanbul after a second pair of bombings in less than a week. The two attacks on Thursday hit a building owned by the London-based HSBC bank in Istanbul and the British Consulate in the city. The bank bombing did not appear to target the Israeli Consulate, which is located nearby, Israeli diplomatic sources said.
