BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:40 P.M.) – Security was stepped up outside Iran’s Embassy in Ankara on Monday, following reports subsequently denied by Iran’s Foreign Ministry, of the embassy being evacuated following a bomb-plot notice.

Earlier on Monday, Turkish media reported that local security had uncovered notice of a possible suicide bomb attack on the facility, and that the Iranian ambassador had been evacuated from the building.

The information was later refuted by Iran’s Foreign Ministry, according to reports. Iranian officials at the embassy also reportedly confirmed all staff were present at the embassy.

Footage shows Turkish police stopping cars for checks around the embassy building.

The road in front of the embassy was temporarily closed to traffic but has since been reopened.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
