Muslim Suicide Bomber Kills 2 At US Embassy In Turkey
ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — A suicide bomber detonated an explosive Friday in front of the U.S. Embassy in Ankara, killing himself and a guard at the entrance gate, officials said.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but Turkey’s interior minister, Muammer Guler, said the bomber was likely connected to a domestic left-wing militant group. He did not explain why.
The explosion occurred inside the security checkpoint at the side entrance to the U.S. embassy, which was being used by staff. A guard standing outside the checkpoint was killed and while the two other guards “were standing in a more protected area,” Guler said.

Butterball turkeys are, by the company’s own admission, certified for consumption under strict Sharia Law guidelines. This means that the animals must be facing Mecca when they are killed, and that they are killed in the name of Allah. A fee is paid for this certification by Butterball to Sharia-based certifying organizations who in turn send the money to support Islamic programs, including Jihad, all over the world.
