Security measures on Iran’s embassy in Ankara lifted
Ankara, The security measures that were implemented Monday following a phone threat against Iran's embassy in Turkey were suspended after the situation returned normal.
A person claiming to be affiliated to the terrorist group of Daesh (ISIS) in a phone call to Turkish police threatened that he would carry out a suicide bomb attack against Iran's embassy in Ankara.
Police took some security measures in the building and the street leading to the embassy.
