The father of the suicide bomber at the US embassy blast said that his son threw himself into fire.
Sadik Sanli, the father of bomber Ecevit Sanli, said, "he threw both himself and me into the fire."
A suicide blast on Friday at a checkpoint outside the US Embassy compound killed the bomber and a security guard, while wounding a Turkish journalist. Speaking in a televised interview, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the DHKP-C, an outlawed leftist group in Turkey, was responsible for the attack.
Sadik Sanli said that he had not heard from his son for 15 years, adding that he learned about the blast and the suicide bomber when he watched the news on TV.
"I saw the incident on TV, and I recognized my son when I saw his photo on TV," said Sanli.
