US, Turkish staff struck by debris in Ankara embassy blast

WASHINGTON - Several US and Turkish staff at the US embassy in Ankara were struck by debris from a suicide bombing that killed one Turkish guard on Friday, US State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.
The spokeswoman said a Turkish visitor to the embassy was in "serious condition" following the blast, which Turkish Interior Minister Muammer Guler said was carried out by a member of an illegal far-left group. Nuland said the staff members struck by debris were treated at the embassy clinic and released.
