ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey's Foreign Minister on Friday described an assault on U.S. sailors in Istanbul this week as reprehensible and vowed that the attackers would "pay the price for their actions."

Members of the nationalist Turkish Youth Union attacked three U.S. sailors on a crowded street in Istanbul on Wednesday, shouting "Yankee go home", throwing paint and trying to pull hoods over their heads. Video footage was later posted on the group's website.
