    The ministry said Andrei Karlov had been shot after the assailant, who has not been identified, “opened fire chaotically” during a speech by the ambassador at an exhibition of pictures of Russia taken by Turkish photographers.

    “Today in Ankara the Russian ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Gennadievich Karpov, died from a wound he received in an attack. We qualify what has happened as a terrorist act,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters.

    Oh My. This is going to seriously damage Russian/Turkish relations and badly affect the region.

    Rip Ambassador.

    On top of everthing, the attacker is wearing a suit.

    No mask, no combat gear, no nothing.

    I have difficulty putting into words why I find this so unnerving. But it does give me the creeps.

    RIP Ambassador Karlov

    He's wearing a suit because he was part of the security detail for the ambassador, like an undercover police officer or secret service type position. I do think he fully expected to be killed as well, so no need for protection.
