Horror: See why a Russian ambassador was shot dead in Turkey by policeman screaming: “Allahu Akbar”

The Russian ambassador to Turkey was shot dead by a Turkish police officer at an art gallery in Ankara tonight. Ambassador Andrey Karlov, 62, was shot at close range by a gunman shouting: ‘Allahu Akbar (God is Great). We die in Aleppo, you die here!’

The shooter has been named on social media as Mevlüt Mert Altıntaş, 22, a police officer from the Ankara police special forces department. It comes as the US Security Department reported an ‘ongoing security incident’ outside the US Embassy in Ankara, near to the gallery where the shooting took place.

The attack came after days of protests in Turkey over Russia’s role in Syria and the attacker reportedly shouted about Aleppo during the attack. Turkey’s Anadolu Agency has said the gunman has been neutralised.
