Two powerful explosions rock Istanbul, Turkey, killing at least 25 people, including British Consul General Roger Short, and wounding nearly 400. The targets include the British consulate and a British bank. The blasts follow deadly bombings at two Istanbul synagogues last weekend. NPR's Bob Edwards talks with Newsweek reporter Owen Matthews.
