DNA tests showed that Ecevit Sanli, a member of the Turkish leftist group DHKP-C, was the suicide bomber in Friday's attack on the US embassy in Ankara, the city governor's office said on Saturday.

 

"The person who detonated the explosives strapped to his body while trying to enter the US embassy was Ecevit Sanli, a militant from the terrorist organisation DHKP-C," the governor's office said in a statement.
