U.S. embassy re-opens after Turkish terror threat

The United States embassy in Turkey’s capital Ankara was due to resume services as normal following a terrorist threat.

The facility, which was closed Monday and ran partial services on Tuesday, was re-opening fully on Wednesday, U.S. News & World Report said citing spokesman David Gainer.

Turkish security forces detained four suspected Islamic State (ISIS) militants in the northern Black Sea coastal city of Samsun on Monday for allegedly planning an attack on the facility.

Embassy services were re-starting after police set up a cordon on the street outside the building, searching visitors, the news service said.
