Murdered Ambassador's Widow And Mother Weep Over His Coffin. Emotional Photos

Russian ambassador Andrei Karlov’s widow broke down in tears as her husband’s body was returned to his homeland amid full military regalia after he was gunned down in Ankara on Monday. His mother Maria also struggled to contain her grief as the coffin, covered with a Russian flag, was carried off the plane by soldiers in full uniform at the Vnukovo International Airport in Moscow.

The ambassador’s family were supported by Turkish foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu and his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov, who also attended the military ceremony.
