Ankara police and health officials said two others were injured in the blast, while Ankara Gov. Aladdin Yuksel said one person was wounded in addition to the one fatality. The suicide bomber also died, authorities said.
Images from CNN sister network CNN Turk showed a hole in what appeared to be a building that is part of the outer gate of the embassy compound, which is in very well-protected area of Ankara near the Turkish parliament building. The gate complex includes blast doors, reinforced windows and a series of metal detectors that visitors must navigate before reaching embassy offices.
