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.
