Turkish Media Ban on Russian Envoy's Murder

An Ankara court has ordered a temporary broadcast ban on media coverage of the news related to the assassination of Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov.
According to judicial sources, the media ban was in response to the request of the Ankara Chief Public Prosecutor's Office, Anadolu Agency reported on Tuesday.
The ban includes footage from the crime scene and news related to suspects connected with the incident. The ban will remain in force until the completion of police investigation.
Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov was shot at the opening of a photo exhibition in Ankara.
The attacker, former police officer Mevlut Mert Altintas, was subsequently killed.
The Russian Foreign Ministry described the incident as a terrorist attack, while Russia's Investigative Committee opened a criminal case over "the act of international terrorism."
