   Russia's ambassador to Turkey was shot dead by a Turkish off-duty policeman in front of a crowd at a posh art gallery in the capital Ankara as the angry gunman screamed: "Don't forget Aleppo".
Police later killed the assailant on Monday night, Turkish police detained six people over the killing. The state-run Anadolu agency said the attacker's mother, father, sister and two other relatives were held in the western province of Aydin, while his flat mate in Ankara was also detained. After the initial shot, the attacker approached Karlov as he lay on the ground and shot him at least one more time at close range, according to an AP photographer at the scene. He paced angrily around the body, while shouting, and also smashed several of the framed photos on exhibition, but later allowed the stunned guests to leave the venue.
   Russia says it regards the killing of Ambassador Kallov as an activity of terrorism. In addition, US secretary of state John Kerry says America is ready to help investigate the attack.
