Suicide bomber at U.S. Embassy believed to be Turkish-minister

ANKARA (Reuters) - A suicide bomber who attacked the U.S. Embassy in Turkey on Friday, killing himself and a security guard, was believed to have been a Turkish citizen, Interior Minister Muammer Guler told reporters.

Guler said a woman was badly wounded in the attack on the U.S. mission and that two security guards were receiving out-patient care at a hospital.
