SHOCKING VIDEO: Russian ambassador shot dead by a Turkish police officer

A Turkish policeman has shot dead Russia’s ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov, apparently in protest at Russia’s involvement in Aleppo.

Several other people were reportedly also injured in the attack, a day after protests in Turkey over Russian support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The killer, who was in civilian clothes, opened fire at point blank range as Mr Karlov made a speech.

He is said to have died in a shootout with police soon afterwards. Mr Karlov was rushed to hospital, reports said, but his death was later confirmed by the Russian foreign ministry.
