An Albanian presidential guard seeking political asylum shot himself dead outside the U.S. Embassy in Tirana on Tuesday after local police refused to let him enter. The 32-year-old man, armed with a pistol, told an Albanian policeman that he wanted to meet U.S. Ambassador Joseph Limprecht to request political asylum. Police outside the building refused to admit him because he did not have an appointment. The man fired a shot at a police officer and then shot himself in the head.
