ISTANBUL — A man approached a visitor’s gate at the American Embassy in the Turkish capital Ankara Friday afternoon and detonated an explosives-packed vest, killing himself and a Turkish security guard, blowing a gaping hole in the wall and raising new fears about the protection of American diplomats serving in this region.

Police: Bomber at U.S. Embassy in Turkey with leftist group

(CNN) -- Turkish officials say a suicide bomber belonging to a radical leftist organization blew himself up just outside the U.S. Embassy in Ankara on Friday.

The blast killed a Turkish security guard and wounded a journalist. A senior U.S. official said no Americans were wounded.

Istanbul police identified the bomber as Ecevit Shanli, a member of DHKP-C, a Marxist Leninist terror group.

Little information is being released about the bomber or the group, but the specter of this kind of attack has once again put a spotlight on security at U.S. posts around the globe.

What is the DHKP-C?

The attack in Turkey came after a rash of attacks at U.S. embassies last September in Cairo, Egypt, Tunisia and, most deadly, in Libya. The attack in Benghazi killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

Earlier Friday, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said that a "terrorist blast" happened at 1:13 p.m. at a checkpoint on the perimeter of the embassy.

"We are working closely with the Turkish national police to make a full assessment of the damage and the casualties, and to begin an investigation," she said.

The bomber arrived first in the rear access of the building and then went to the first checkpoint, Nuland said, where IDs are checked.

"You have to go through security, and he was wearing a suicide vest," Nuland said. "He exploded at the guard ... the one on his side of the security barrier was killed."

Two other guards on the other side of the glass survived, she said.

The FBI will investigate the bombing along with local authorities, a U.S. law enforcement official told CNN. The FBI has a legal attache office in Ankara, the FBI's website says.

U.S. Embassy bomber believed tied to Turkish group
Interior minister says Ankara suicide bomber likely connected to domestic left-wing group

The suicide bomber who detonated an explosive in front of the U.S. Embassy in Ankara is most likely connected to a domestic left-wing militant organization, Turkey's Interior Minister Muammer Guler has said.

A police official said that the bomber, who killed himself and a security guard, is most likely a suspected member of the outlawed Revolutionary People's Liberation Party Front. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not permitted to speak to the press.

A Turkish woman was also seriously wounded and two other guards sustained lighter wounds, Guler said.

The bomb exploded inside the security checkpoint at the side entrance of the embassy, but did not do damage inside the embassy itself. Footage showed that the door had been blown off its hinges and debris littered the ground and across the road.

And I see how this is not getting ANY attention even at GLP

A REAL attack on a US Embassy and its being swept under the rug, because it just so happens to be in "Turkey"...what IF that happened lets say, for example, in Egypt? Pinned thread and 20 pages within minutes. But Turkey doesn't fit the Agenda I guess.
