ISTANBUL — A Syrian suicide bomber set off an explosion in the historic central district of Istanbul on Tuesday, killing 10 people and wounding at least 15 others, in an attack that the Turkish government attributed to the Islamic State.

All of the dead were foreign citizens; nine were German.

The blast occurred at around 10:15 a.m. in the heart of Sultanahmet, one of the most heavily trafficked districts in the historic city, steps from monuments commemorating the three empires — Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman — of which the former Constantinople, now Istanbul, was the capital.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu called for international support in the fight against terrorism.
