Two dead, several injured in blast outside US Embassy in Ankara
According to Turkish sources, the two dead were security guards.
It was not immediately known what caused the explosion, but some reports say a suspected bomber detonated his explosives inside a security checkpoint at the entrance to the embassy’s visa section.
The explosion caused damage to the checkpoint, but there was no damage inside the embassy.
The force of the blast also damaged nearby buildings in the Cankaya neighborhood, where many other state institutions and embassies are located.
No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.
In 2008, three police officers and three gunmen were killed in an attack outside the American consulate in Istanbul.
