ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A group of sympathizers of the group that claimed responsibility for the U.S. consulate attack in Turkey on Monday was detained by police outside the hospital where one of the attackers was being treated. The far-left Revolutionary People's Liberation Army-Front (DHKP-C), considered a terrorist organisation by the United States and Turkey, said one of its members was involved in the attack, in which two women shot at the diplomatic mission. The group called Washington the "arch enemy" of the people of the Middle East and the world. The consulate attack came amid a wave of separate attacks on Turkish security forces, weeks after Ankara launched a crackdown on Islamic State, Kurdish and far-left militants. Police with automatic rifles cordoned off streets around the U.S. consulate in the Sariyer district on the European side of Istanbul, following the gun attack there.
