The Washington Post Reports:

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.

Turkey and the U.S. immediately condemned the attack and U.S. officials urged Americans to stay away from all U.S. diplomatic offices throughout Turkey.

A Turkish woman was also seriously wounded and two other guards sustained lighter wounds in the 1:15 p.m. blast in the Turkish capital, Interior Minister Muammer Guler told reporters. Facebook Fark Furl
