Wild West near the USA consulate Istanbul
Gunmen opened fire on police in front of the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul today and three officers and three attackers were killed in the shootout.
The secure U.S. consulate building was built on a hill after homegrown Islamic militants linked to al-Qaida carried out suicide bombings in 2003 that targeted two synagogues, the British Consulate and a British bank in Istanbul, killing 58 people.
Note: Some things sounds weird to me; one of the attackers managed to escape, and what the heck this attack was about? Do I have to believe the Turkish 'Chaos theorie' now?
