Turkish media reports say two assailants opened fire at the U.S. Consulate building in Istanbul, touching off a gunfight with police.

The private Dogan news agency says no one was hurt in the attack on Monday and the two assailants managed to escape.

The attack came hours after a bomb attack at a police station in Istanbul injured 10 people, including seven police officers.
