THIS shocking video shows a gunman holding a revolver in the air and bellowing “Allahu Akbar” after assassinating the Russian ambassador to Turkey.

The clip captures the horrifying aftermath of this evening’s attack, which took place in the country’s capital of Ankara.

Andrei Karlov died after being shot five times in the back during a speech at an art gallery. This video shows the immediate, chilling aftermath of the cold-blooded attack.

The gunman is shown prowling across the floor in a sharp, black suit and tie.

He points his gun at the crowd and shouts “Allahu Akbar” before ranting at the top of his voice for 30 seconds. The ambassador lies motionless on the ground.

Witnesses can be heard screaming in fear as the man continues his diatribe while holding his fist in the air, occasionally pointing his weapon directly at the crowd.

A source said the gunman introduced himself as ambassador’s personal security detail before opening fire after screaming “you Russians destroyed Aleppo and Syria”.

The gunman spoke in Russian before shooting Mr Karlov, who had been delivering a speech for several minutes, in the back.

At least three other people have been shot and special forces have been called to the scene as hostages are held.
