Erdogan's pivot: Turkey, Syria and the assassination of the Russian ambassador (part 1)

As Russia mourns the death of its ambassador to Ankara, Turkey's president is blaming supporters of US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen for the murder.

And are Erdogan's priorities shifting? Just when Turkey and Russia had buried the hatchet, does the assassination make Turkey's president beholden to Moscow?
