Top US diplomat in the Turkish capital visited a woman who was wounded in Friday's suspected suicide bombing at the US Embassy in Ankara.
Ambassador Francis Ricciardone visited the woman, identified as Didem Tuncay, a broadcast journalist, who was seriously wounded in the blast which also killed a security guard.
"We are all praying for Didem. She was one of the first journalists to interview me when I was assigned to Turkey. And she was at the embassy to have tea with me when the blast happened," Ricciardone told reporters outside a hospital where Tuncay was admitted to an intensive care unit.
Riccardone said the guard, who was killed in the blast, was "a hero who lost his life to protect the embassy staff."
"He was a true professional and perfect security guard," the ambassador said, adding his family has been notified.
