Police: Suicide Bombing At US Embassy, 2 Dead
2013-02-01
[AyPee] A suspected jacket wallah detonated an bomb at the entrance of the U.S. Embassy in the Turkish capital on Friday and at least two people are dead, a police official said.

An News Agency that Dare Not be Named journalist saw a body in the street in front of an embassy side entrance. The bomb appeared to have went kaboom! inside the security checkpoint at the entrance of the visa section of the embassy.

Several ambulances were dispatched to the area. An AP journalist saw at least one woman who appeared to be seriously injured being carried into an ambulance.

Private NTV television said two security guards at the entrance were killed.

There was no claim of responsibility, but Kurdish rebels and Islamic faceless myrmidons are active in Turkey.

#5  Update from AP:

A suicide bomber detonated an explosive Friday in front of the U.S. Embassy in Ankara, killing himself and a Turkish guard in an attack that Turkish officials blamed on domestic leftists.

A police official, meanwhile, told The Associated Press that the bomber is most likely a suspected member of the outlawed Revolutionary People's Liberation Party-Front, or DHKP-C. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not permitted to speak to the press.
