ANKARA - Turkish police detonated a suspicious package near the US embassy in Ankara on Monday, according to local media.

Security forces sealed off an area near the main gates of the embassy after two unidentified packages were found, the Milliyet newspaper reported. One of the packages was then detonated, the paper said, without giving further details.



No one from the US authorities was immediately available to comment.

Last year a security guard was killed when a suicide bomber from a leftist militant group blew himself up outside a side gate of the embassy.
