At least six police and soldiers were killed in a series of attacks in Turkey, while another shooting struck the U.S. consulate in the country's largest city.

Two women are suspected in the assault on the consulate in Istanbul.  One was injured in a firefight with police and is in custody, while a second remains at large.  The leftist Revolutionary People's Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C) claimed responsibility for the attack that shut down operations at the diplomatic mission.

The group, which carried out  a suicide bombing at the U.S. Embassy in Ankara in 2013, is considered a terrorist organization by the United States and the European Union.

土耳其发生一系列袭击事件,至少6名警察和士兵被打死。与此同时,土耳其最大城市伊斯坦布尔的美国领事馆也发生枪击。

怀疑是两名女子发动对伊斯坦布尔的美领馆的袭击。其中一人在与警方的枪战中受伤并被拘捕,另一人则在逃。左翼组织革命人民解放阵线声称对袭击事件负责。美领馆在袭击发生后关闭。

革命人民解放阵线曾在2013年发动对美国驻安卡拉大使馆的自杀炸弹袭击。这个组织被美国和欧盟列为恐怖组织。
