As the Turkish American Society of Columbus, Ohio, we are shocked and saddened by the terror attack outside the U.S. Embassy in Ankara, Turkey.
A suicide bomber detonated an explosive device killing himself and one other person, identified by the U.S. Ambassador Francis Ricciardione as a Turkish Embassy guard.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the guard’s family.
We condemn in the strongest terms the attack; there is no justification for this act of violence.
Once again, we offer our deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of those who lost their lives and our thoughts and prayers go out to all those injured.
