A suspected suicide bomber detonated an explosive device at the entrance of the US embassy in Ankara, killing himself and one other person, officials said.

An Associated Press reporter saw a body in the street in front of an embassy side entrance. The bomb appeared to have exploded inside the security checkpoint at the entrance to the embassy.

The US ambassador, Francis Ricciardone, told reporters that a guard at the gate was killed and a Turkish citizen wounded.

A Reuters witness saw one wounded person being lifted into an ambulance as police cordoned off the area following the explosion, which sent smoke and debris flying into the street.

Television footage showed a door blown out and masonry from the wall around it scattered in front of the entrance, although there did not appear to be any more significant structural damage.
