The Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman confirmed the death of Andrey Karlov.

Russia has been a close ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and its air strikes were instrumental in helping Syrian forces end rebel resistance last week in the northern city of Aleppo.

The attacker dressed smartly in a black suit and tie and was standing behind the ambassador as he made a speech at the art exhibition.

A witness told, “He took out his gun and shot the ambassador from behind. We saw him lying on the floor and then we ran out”.

A video was recorded by the press present there, and can be seen here:
