Turkish police raid leftist group after US embassy bombing

Police launched raids across Turkey early on Tuesday targeting a militant leftist group behind a suicide bomb attack on the US embassy, ordering the arrest of nearly 200 people, state-run Anatolian news agency reported.

 

The nationwide operation came after a member of the Revolutionary People's Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C) blew himself up at an entrance of the US embassy in Ankara on Feb. 1, killing a Turkish security guard. (Reuters)
