    Turkey Confirms Embassy Bomber's Identity

    People stand outside the entrance of the US Embassy in Ankara just after a blast killed two security guards and wounded several other people on February 1, 2013. The United States confirmed on February 1 that its embassy in Ankara had been hit by a "terrorist" bomb attack and said American officials were working with Turkish investigators. "We can confirm a terrorist blast at a check point on the perimeter of our embassy compound in Ankara, Turkey, at 1:13 p.m. local time," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said in a statement.

    A member of a leftist group is behind the suicide bombing at a U.S. Embassy that killed a security guard on Friday. The Turkish government says DNA tests confirmed Saturday that Ecevit Sanli, a member of the leftist Revolutionary People's Liberation Army-Front, was behind the attack. The group has accused the United States of using Turkey as its "slave," and claimed responsibility for the attack on its webstie saying "Murderer America! You will not run away from people's rage." Turkey is an important U.S. ally, and one of the leading advocates for intervention in the war in Syria.
