Turkish authorities arrested two people on Wednesday over the assassination of the Russian ambassador to Ankara, widening an investigation into the incident.

A police officer and another suspect were arrested on charges of “being a member of a terrorist organization” in connection with an investigation into the killing of Andrey Karlov.

Karlov was killed on December 19, 2016 following an attack by Mert Altıntaş, a suspected Gülenist, during the opening reception of an art exhibition in the Turkish capital. Altıntaş was later killed in a shootout with police.

The incident rocked Turkey as it was trying to restore ties with Russia following a crisis over downing of a Russian jet for violating Turkish airspace. Moscow and Ankara later assured it would not harm the relations.
