ISIS has attempted to capitalise on the assassination of Russia’s ambassador to Turkey by sharing a list of embassies on social media.

Jihadists published a PDF file of Russian consulate addresses around the world online after Monday’s attack in Ankara.
It comes as a photo has emerged appearing to show gunman Mevlut Mert Altintas, 22, as a supporter of Turkish President Erdogan.
Pro-government media has attempted to link Altintas to the Gulen movement, the same group that was blamed for the failed coup in July.

Now sources have confirmed Altintas was part of the presidential bodyguard in the weeks after the failed coup in July. A picture on social media is believed to show the off-duty police officer turned killer at an AKP event for Erdogan’s conservative party.

Turkish authorities said Altintas took part in eight events involving President Erdogan. It has not been revealed what his duties were or how close he actually got to the President during his brief assignment.
