British founder of White Helmets found dead in Istanbul

Source: The Guardian

A spokesman for the White Helmets confirmed on Monday afternoon the death of James Le Mesurier, but said further details were yet to be established.

A diplomat told Reuters that Le Mesurier was found dead near his apartment in central Istanbul’s Beyoğlu neighbourhood. Turkish media reports said he was found with fractures to his head and legs near the apartment building on Monday morning.

5. The story has been updated to say it's thought he fell from a balcony

and it's being treated as suicide. However, with both Turks and Russians involved, I'd want good evidence before accepting that.
