US embassy in Turkey to be closed over ‘security threat’

The US embassy in the Turkish capital Ankara will be closed to the public on Monday over a “security threat”, the mission announced on its website.

The embassy was the target in 2013 of a suicide bombing claimed by a far-left group that killed a Turkish security guard.

Relations between NATO allies Washington and Ankara are strained over a number of issues, notably the US arming of a Syrian Kurdish militia, the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG).
