In Turkey, five men have been sentenced to life in prison for their role in the assassination of Russian Ambassador Andrei Karlov, who was shot dead in 2016 while speaking at an art gallery in Ankara. The gunman was an off-duty Turkish police officer who yelled at the scene, “Don’t forget Aleppo! Don’t forget Syria!” The gunman was shot dead, but Turkish authorities later charged 28 others, including the self-exiled Islamic preacher Fethullah Gülen, in relation to the shooting.
