Aftermath: Explosion in front of the US embassy in Ankara

Several people have been hurt after an explosion in front of the US embassy in the Turkish capital Ankara, reports say.

An Associated Press journalist reported seeing a body in the street at a side entrance.

It was not immediately clear what the cause of the blast was.

Another journalist Ilnur Cevik told Sky News: "There was a huge bang which really shook everywhere."

He was driving about 400 metres away from the US embassy when the reported blast happened.

Mr Cevik thought there were "a lot of injuries" as he "saw lots of ambulances and I thought there was something really serious".
