ANKARA (Reuters) - A suicide bomber who attacked the U.S. Embassy in Ankara on Friday, killing himself and a security guard, belonged to an illegal leftist group, Turkish Interior Minister Muammer Guler said.

Speaking to reporters, Guler said the attacker could have been a member of the militant Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C) or another leftist group.
