Turkey tells U.S. that Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen was behind Russian diplomat`s killings


Turkey`s foreign minister has told U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry that Ankara and Moscow believe followers of Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen were behind the killing of Russian ambassador Andrei Karlov, ministry sources said on Tuesday, according to Reuters.

Ankara has also accused Gulen of orchestrating a failed coup in July, a charge the cleric denies, Reuters reports.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Russian Ambassador in Turkey Andrei Karlov was gunned down at a photo exhibition by a Turkish police officer who shot at the envoy multiple times, shouting ”We die in Aleppo, you die here!”
