The Russian ambassador to Ankara, Turkey, has been seriously wounded in a gun attack and taken to hospital, according to Turkish channel NTV.
Andrey Karlov has represented Russia in the country since 2013.
The gunman is still at large.
Initial reports suggested he was visiting a photo exhibit in the capital when he was shot in the back.
Hurriyet happened photojournalist Hasim Kilic said: organized by the Russian embassy in the photo had exhibition. A man in a black suit was standing behind the ambassador, who we thought was our protection when the embassy was speaking. And then he fired at the air. Then the ambassador shot. The attacker said more about Aleppo. Then he wanted people to go out. As the people went out, they fired a few more hands into the body of the ambassador. I guess one of those invites came to one of the invites. He said that the Contemporary Arts Center's security was entering by showing a police ID. There were about 100 people in the guesthouse and they were completely evacuated. As the people ran away, the ambassador fired a few more hands.
