ANKARA - Several gunshots were fired from a vehicle at the US embassy in the Turkish capital, Ankara, on Monday, hitting a window in a security post but causing no casualties, broadcaster CNN Turk reported.

It said police teams were searching for the assailants who fled in a white car after the attack, which occurred around 5 am (0200 GMT).

The attack coincided with a deepening row between Ankara and Washington over the trial of a US pastor in Turkey.
