Suicide Bomber Kills One Outside U.S. Embassy in Turkey
Tension is high in Turkey as questions loom Friday over who is responsible for a suicide bombing at the U.S. Embassy in Ankara.
A Turkish security guard was killed and the bomber died, authorities say.
There are conflicting accounts concerning how many were wounded.
Ankara police and health officials said two were injured while Ankara Gov. Aladdin Yuksel said one person was hurt.
A senior U.S. official said no Americans were wounded.
The “terrorist blast” occurred at 1:13 p.m. at a checkpoint on the perimeter of the embassy, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.
