From Breaking 911:
The pair targeted a riot police bus with a machine gun and launched explosives towards it as it drove into a police station.Police officers then returned fire, before tracing them to a government building. Residents in the nearby area were evacuated as specialized police prepared to capture them.
Officers then raided the building and shot the pair dead after they failed to surrender. Two police officers were wounded, one by broken glass and the other during the raid on the building. Istanbul Governor Vahip Sahin said police were trying to identify the attackers and any accomplices.
There has been no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. Dramatic footage has emerged which shows the moment the two women attacked the riot police bus. The Anadolu news agency reports that the two women have been identified as members of the leftist DHKP-C militant group.
