A suicide bomber killed a Turkish security guard at the U.S. embassy in Ankara on Friday, blowing the door off a side entrance and sending smoke and debris flying into the street. A Reuters witness saw one wounded person being lifted into an ambulance as police armed with assault rifles cordoned off the area. "It was a huge explosion. I was sitting in my shop when it happened.
