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.

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.

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."
