A 28-year-old Syrian national blew himself up in a popular tourist district of Istanbul Tuesday, killing at least 10 people and injuring at least 15 more, Turkish government officials said.

Turkey's Dogan news agency reported that at least six Germans, one Norwegian and one Peruvian were among the wounded, and Seoul's Foreign Ministry told reporters via text message that one South Korean had a finger injury.

Istanbul is a popular destination for Europeans and Americans, but has experienced a number of terror attacks from Al Qaeda and ISIS in recent years. The city serves as a gateway between the European continent and Asia. 

Tonight during President Obama's final State of the Union address, First Lady Michelle Obama will host a Syrian refugee in her box as a guest.
