Police Hunt for Gunman At Turkey For Night Club Shootings – 39 Dead

Istanbul is on high alert as police continues to hunt for a gunman, who fled after killing 39 people on New Year’s Eve at the Reina nightclub. Politicians and world leaders join to condemn attack and President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan vowed in a statement that Turkey would fight terrorism “till the end” following the attack at the night club in Instabul’s upscale Ortakoy neighbourhood.

“Turkey will stand together and not give passage to dirty games of terrorists,” he said. Mehmet Görmez, Turkey’s most senior Muslim cleric, also condemned the attack as “savagery” and a “massacre that no Muslim conscience can accept”.

There was condemnation from around the world as well as inside Turkey. The US State Department described the attack as “heinous” and the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, said it was “hard to imagine a more cynical crime”.

Flowers and candles have been placed in front of the Reina nightclub to mourn the dead.
