The U.S. embassy in Turkey’s capital of Ankara is closing to the public on Monday due to potential security threats.
The U.S. embassy in Ankara issued a warning to U.S. citizens in Turkey on Sunday, instructing them to avoid large crowds and stay away from the American consulate.
The State Department did not specify what the security threat was that prompted the closure, but noted Americans should also avoid popular tourist spots.
Visa interviews and other routine services will be cancelled on Monday with only emergency services being provided.
The State Department officials said they would make an announcement when the embassy is ready to reopen.
