German Embassy in Turkey
The German embassy in Ankara and consulate general in Istanbul have been shut down due to a terror warning, the Foreign Ministry said.


The German school in Istanbul has also been closed, the ministry said.

The closures of the consulate and school have been made following a warning that was “not conclusively verifiable,” according to an email sent by the German consulate to its citizens, DPA reported. The email added that the facilities would be closed as a precaution on Thursday.

The German consulate is near Taksim Square, a major tourist and leisure district in Istanbul.

The move comes days after a deadly attack in the capital Ankara that killed 37 people and injured dozens. The blast on Sunday was caused by an "explosive-laden vehicle," according to the governor’s office in Ankara.

In January, a suicide bomber carried out an attack in central Istanbul, killing 12 German tourists. The explosion happened on Sultanahmet Square, close to the Sultanahmet tram stop and the Dikilitas Obelisk of Theodosius in the heart of Istanbul’s historic tourist district.
