Many killed in nightclub attack in Turkey
At least 35 people have been killed in a gun attack at a famous nightclub in Istanbul during New Year's Eve celebrations, reports the Telegraph.

A gunman reportedly dressed in a Santa costume shot a police officer before storming the Reina club in the Ortakoy area of the city.

"Unfortunately, at least 35 of our citizens lost their lives. One was a police officer. Forty people are receiving treatment in hospitals," Vasip Sahin told reporters at the scene of the elite nightclub on the city's European side, describing the incident as a "terror attack".

There were several hundred people in the club at the time. Many party-goers threw themselves into the Bosphorus in panic after the attack and efforts were underway to rescue them from the waters, NTV television said.

In Istanbul, 17,000 police officers were put on duty, some camouflaged as Santa Clause and others as street vendors, Anadolu reported.
