President Abdullah Gül has said that Turkish police and the intelligence service had information that the outlawed Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party/Front (DHKP/C) could launch an assault prior to the Feb. 1 suicide attack on the U.S. Embassy in Ankara.

“Unfortunately, both the police department and the intelligence service were on alert concerning the fact that this terror organization [DHKP/C] was seeking to launch an attack, they were warning everybody. But unfortunately it could not be prevented and the attack against the embassy took place,” Gül said on Feb. 4 during a joint press conference with Serbia’s visiting President Tomislav Nikolic.
