The first explosion occurred as men were emptying a rubbish truck in the city centre, injuring three, Anatolia said.

The second explosion occurred about five minutes later in a bin and injured three more people, including a tourist, Anatolia said.

Police had no immediate comment on the explosions. An official in the local governor's office said the blasts were the result of deodorant cans exploding from the heat. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, could only confirm one injured but said there could also be other injuries.

Turkish officials are rarely permitted to speak on the record.
