A suicide bomber who attacked the U.S. Embassy in Ankara earlier today was a male and probably Turkish, according to Interior Minister Muammer Güler.

A security guard who also died in the attack has been identified as Mustafa Akarsu, 36, the minister said.

Didem Tuncay, a 38-year-old former broadcast journalist, was also heavily injured in the attack, Güler said.

The attack destroyed the entrance to the embassy building, he said, adding that the force of the explosion left body parts strewn around the scene.

The minister is expected to make further remarks.
