In a statement, Trump condemned the assassination of Russia's Ambassador to Turkey saying the killing was carried out by a "radical Islamic terrorists."
US President-elect Donald Trump on Monday called on the world to "change thinking" following deadly attacks on a Russian ambassador in Turkey and a Christmas market in Germany. On the social media website, Twitter, Trump said, "Today there were terror attacks in Turkey, Switzerland and Germany - and it is only getting worse. The civilized world must change thinking!"
In a statement issued by his transition team, Trump condemned the assassination of Russia's Ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov, on Monday, saying the killing was carried out by a "radical Islamic terrorist" and violated "all rules of civilized order." The statement also offered condolences to Karlov's family.

In a separate statement, Trump also condemned the attack at a Christmas market in Berlin that killed nine people and injured dozens more, linking that attack to "Islamist terrorists" before German police had said who was responsible. Trump said "ISIS and other Islamist terrorists continually slaughter Christians in their communities and places of worship as part of their global jihad."

During his presidential campaign, Trump frequently vowed to defeat Islamic State if elected.

In Switzerland, a gunman opened fire inside a Zurich mosque during prayers, wounding three men, one critically, before fleeing. Swiss police have not commented on the motive in that case.
