An explosion that ripped through İstanbul University's School of Law wounded three people, the private Cihan news agency has reported.

Cihan added that the three people were slightly injured in a blast that took place in a women's restroom and that one of the three was cleaning staff and two were students.

An hour after the incident, the university's rector released a press statement in which he said the explosion occurred due to a buildup of gas in a pipe in the lavatory.
