The Marxist group DHKP-C on Saturday claimed responsibility for the suicide bomb attack on the US embassy in Ankara on Friday that killed a guard and the bomber himself.
Turkish extreme left-wing group DHKP-C said on Saturday that it was responsible for a suicide bomb attack on the US embassy in Ankara on Friday, according to a statement on a website affiliated with the group.
“Our warrior Alisan Sanli carried out an act of self-sacrifice on Feb 1, 2013, by entering the Ankara embassy of the United States, murderer of the people of the world,” the statement said.
The suicide bomber detonated an explosive Friday in front of the U.S. Embassy, killing himself and a guard at the entrance gate.
The bomb exploded inside the security checkpoint at the side entrance to the embassy, but did not damage the inside of the embassy itself.
