Deadly Attack on U.S. Consulate in Turkey

Once again, we sadly report on a terrorist attack aimed at destroying American lives. Fortunately, no Americans were hurt, but our thoughts go out to the families of the three Turkish Policemen killed while protecting the U.S. Consulate.

It was obviously an anti-American terrorist attack. The Consulate is said to be one of the most secure buildings in Istanbul. Three terrorists died along with the three Policemen who were guarding the Consulate.

Once again, this shows the danger that U.S. visitors face when travelling overseas these days. Turkey has long been a favourite tourist destination. Good value, great climate, interesting bazzars, friendly people – all of the ingredients one seeks when spending their holiday savings. These days howver, visitors need to also weigh up the potential for attack because of their Nationality.
