A video of the moments after a gunman shot dead the Russian ambassador to Turkey in Ankara has emerged. The video shows Turkish assassin, wearing a suit and tie, shout "Allahu akbar" and “don't forget Aleppo, don't forget Syria.”
After firing at least eight shots, he continued in Arabic, saying: "We are the descendants of those who supported the Prophet Muhammad, for jihad."
The man then yelled: "Stand back. Stand back. Only death will take me out of here. Anyone who has a role in this oppression will die one by one."
According to Barın Kayaoğlu (@barinkayaoglu), the assassin was speaking in Turkish for the most part. He tweeted the translation.
