Russian ambassador to Turkey Andrei Karlov shot dead in Ankara

A Turkish policeman has shot dead Russia's ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov, apparently in protest at Russia's involvement in Aleppo.

The killer has been identified as Mevlut Mert Aydintas, 22, a member of the Ankara riot police. It was not clear if he had links to any group.

The incident happened a day after protests in Turkey over Russian support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Turkey's president said the attack was aimed at hurting ties with Russia.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke to Russian President Vladimir Putin by phone and, in a video message, said that they both agreed it was an act of "provocation".

He said that those who wanted to harm relations between the two countries "would not achieve it".

In televised remarks, Mr Putin said the act was "undoubtedly a provocation aimed at disrupting the normalisation" of bilateral ties and the "peace process in Syria".

A group of Russian investigators will arrive in Turkey to look into the case, Mr Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

Regarding doone's post about second languages in Canada.

I just looked up the Toronto Star and see it's owned by the Star Media Group.
Interesting to see they are have joint interest in
Sing Tao Daily (Canada) the largest Chinese language newspaper in Canada with joint stake with Hong Kong-based Sing Tao Daily
Metro, the largest free daily newspaper in Canada..

No editor bar so this post won't show the links.

A dog has won the first place in the UK’s best dressed competition after his dress sense and hairdo had “striking resemblance” to Republican nominee Donald Trump.
