>> Murdered Russian diplomat, Andrey Karlov, given a state funeral in Moscow. The country's ambassador to Turkey was shot dead Monday in Ankara by an off-duty policeman. Russian President Vladimir Putin attending Thursday's ceremony.
After paying his respects, he sat beside Karlov's widow. In Ankara, security has been tightened around the Russian embassy and an investigation continues. The shooter was swiftly identified as 22 year old policeman, Mevlut Mert Altintas. He had reportedly been sharing a flat in the city with a lawyer. A district official says there were irregularities.
> Turkey suspects Altintas had links to Muslim cleric, Fethullah Gulen, whom it blames for July's coup attempt.
Gulen strongly denies both charges. Back in Moscow, Karlov's memorial proceedings continued. He's been posthumously awarded the country's highest military medal. The head of Russia's Orthodox Church will lead a service of remembrance. A sign of just how seriously Putin regards the death of an ambassador.
