Russian Ambassador to Turkey assassinated by Turkish Police officer Mevlüt Mert Altıntaş

I am totally shocked by this development. My condolences to his family and the people of Russia. This is terrible news.

I don't think I have seen this kind of thing in a long time.

A member of the diplomatic community is always at risk of being attacked but this is beyond the pale of what is acceptable behavior.

This is one of those Archduke Ferdinand moments in history.
