Turkey detains three after U.S. embassy bombing: state TV

ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Authorities in Turkey detained three people in Istanbul and Ankara on Saturday in connection with Friday’s suicide bomb attack on the U.S. embassy in Ankara, state broadcaster TRT said.

A Turkish leftist group, the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Army-Front (DHKP-C), said earlier it was responsible for the attack, which killed the bomber and a Turkish security guard.
