Attacker shot at embassy
An attacker armed with a knife tried to enter the Israeli Embassy in Turkey yesterday before being shot and slightly wounded by Turkish security officials, Turkish and Israeli officials said. The Ankara governor’s office identified the man as Osman Nuri Caliskan, a Turkish national born in 1975, and said that a preliminary investigation indicated that he appeared to be mentally unstable and has no known links to any terror group. The man was carrying a 30cm-long knife and a bag and was captured by police after being shot in the leg. The state-run Anadolu Agency said police guarding the embassy shot him in the leg after he took out a knife wrapped inside a newspaper, started to shout and ignored warnings.
