The assassin killed Ambassador Andrey Karlov during a speech he was giving at the embassy-sponsored exhibition in the capital when a man wearing a suit and tie shouted “Allahu akbar” and fired at least eight shots, according to an AP photographer in the audience.
It was reported that the gunman shouted in Turkish: “Don’t forget Aleppo. Don’t forget Syria.”
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.”
He also shouted “Allahu akbar,” the Arabic phrase for “God is great” and continued in Arabic: “We are the descendants of those who supported the Prophet Muhammad, for jihad.”
Foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova made the announcement in a live televised statement.
