Russia’s ambassador to Turkey has been shot dead while visiting an art exhibition in the capital, Ankara.

The gunman, a smartly dressed man in a suit and tie, was heard shouting: ‘We die in Aleppo, you die here!’

Andrey Karlov was taken to hospital but unconfirmed reports say he has died.

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’.

Russia Today reported that Mr Karlov was injured as he prepared to deliver a speech at the opening of the exhibition on ‘Russia in the eyes of Turks’.

Eyewitnesses told the TASS news agency that several shots were fired and the gunman shouted ‘Get out!’
Today’s shooting comes 24 hours before the Turkish foreign minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu is due in Moscow for talks with his Russian and Iranian counterparts.
