Suicide Bomber Shot Dead in Front of Istanbul’s Police HQ

n_80482_1Security forces have shot two assailants during an attack on the police headquarters in Istanbul in which two policemen were injured.

 
The assailants opened fire on police stationed at the entrance of the building in Istanbul’s Fatih district with long-barreled weapons, the report said.

The female assailant carrying a bomb was shot dead on the spot, Istanbul Governor Vasif Şahin said in a statement.
The male assailant, who initially ran away wounded, has been detained, the agency later reported.

The police closed one of the main roads of the city, Vatan Street, to traffic immediately after the attack, which has still not been claimed by any group.

The attack came a day after two suspected members of the outlawed far-left group, the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C), took a prosecutor hostage in an Istanbul courthouse, before all three were killed during a late night confrontation with the police.

The DHKP-C has recently threatened to attack police stations in Turkey.
