Turkish security forces targeted in series of attacks
[snip] The far-leftist Revolutionary People’s Liberation Army-Front (DHKP/C) claimed responsibility for the attack on the US consulate. One of the assailants, a female who was wounded during the shoot-out with police, was later captured nearby. Al Jazeera’s Bernard Smith, reporting from Istanbul, said the woman was chased down a back street near the consulate, and had screamed: “I did it for my party”, before being shot and wounded by police. The second attacker, also a woman, escaped from the area. In 2013, the DHKP/C claimed responsibility for an attack on the US embassy in the capital, Ankara, that killed a Turkish security guard.
