Global Rejection to Murder of Russian Ambassador in Turkey

Whatever motivated gunman Mevlut Mert Altintas, an off-duty policeman killed by police after shooting Karlov at a photo exhibition in Ankara on Monday, has not been confirmed.

Andrei Karlov, the Russian ambassador to Turkey, was shot and killed Monday morning by a Turkish assailant who was upset with Russia's involvement in Syria, and Aleppo specifically. The gunman, Mevlüt Mert Altıntaş, 22, shouted slogans related to the almost 6-year-old civil war in Syria before he was shot and killed by police.

The assassination was captured by Associated Press photographer Burhan Ozbilici.

Turkish NTV broadcaster says that three other people were also injured in the attack on the ambassador.
