    Russia's Federation Council called on the Turkish lawmakers to take the investigation of murder of Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov under parliamentary control, a lawmaker in Russia's upper house of parliament Murat Khapsirokov said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Karlov was shot at an art gallery exhibition opening by Turkish off-duty police officer Mevlut Mert Altintas Monday. Three more people were also injured in the shooting. The Russian Foreign Ministry said it considered the attack a terrorist act.

    “Within the framework of the bilateral cooperation group of the Federation Council and the Turkish parliament we called on our colleagues to take the investigation of this murder under parliamentary control,” Khapsirokov said at a parliamentary session.
