CNN-Turk says the explosion occurred at state-run television building.
The Turkish military said that it had launched a coup, in what the prime minister termed an illegal act aimed at usurping the authorities.
Soldiers were seen on the streets in Istanbul and Ankara as jets flew low overhead, while ordinary citizens rushed for the safety of their homes after witnessing the coup attempt.
“The power in the country has been seized in its entirety,” said a military statement quoted by Turkish media.
It said the move had been made “in order to ensure and restore constitutional order, democracy, human rights and freedoms and let the supremacy law in the country prevail, to restore order which was disrupted.”
