A radical Turkish Marxist group which claimed the suicide bombing at the U.S. embassy in Ankara last week has offered an apology to a journalist wounded in the attack, according to an online statement.

Television journalist Didem Tuncay, 38, was seriously wounded in the attack last Friday, which also killed a Turkish security guard at the embassy.

"We apologize for this unintentional injury to Didem Tuncay, her family, our public and workers of the press," the Revolutionary People's Liberation Front (DHKP-C) said in a statement posted on the Halkin Sesi (Voice of the People) website, adding that journalists would never be a target.

Tuncay was undergoing an eye surgery on Friday after a piece of shrapnel hit her in the face, but she is expected to be released next week.

The DHKP-C, a vehemently anti-U.S. group, expressed no regrets over the killing of the 46-year-old security guard, describing him as "an enemy of the people" and saying he deserved his fate for "having served America for 20 years".
