Dozens Killed At Istanbul Nightclub On New Year's Day

A manhunt is under way in Istanbul for a gunman responsible for killing 39 people and wounding dozens more at a nightclub in Turkey's largest city early on January 1. Istanbul Province Governor Vasip Sahin said the gunman carried a long-barreled gun. He killed a policeman at the entrance to the Reina nightclub in the city’s Ortakoy district about one hour after midnight and opened fire on many of the some 500-700 people celebrating the new year inside the club.
