UPDATE: 35 KILLED AND OVER 40 WOUNDED
TURKISH GOVERNMENT IS PUTTING A GAG ORDER ON ALL SOCIAL MEDIA SOON
Breaking and sketchy information from Istanbul, Turkey where men REPORTEDLY wearing Santa suits armed with guns and knives attacked a crowd of approx 800 niteclub goers:
The Reina nightclub in Istanbul’s Ortaköy district has left numerous injured or killed:
FROM TURKISH NEWS SOURCE: ANKARA TIMES:
“The inglorious (attacker) raved through the place with Kalashnikovs. The U.S. intelligence warned over such an attack about one week or 10 days ago and measures have been taken, including the sea front. And look what has happened then,” Mehmet Koçarslan told Hürriyet reporter Toygun Atilla adding that such an attack was coming, but could not be prevented.
Reina is one of the international night clubs in Istanbul frequented by the high-society, celebs, artists and football stars.
Some revelers had jumped into the water to escape the gunfire and were being rescued by police, NTV said.
THIS IS FROM TURKEY AND HAS NOT BEEN TRANSLATED BUT IT APPEARS AS THOUGH IT’S FROM INSIDE THE NITECLUB AND IT COULD BE A TERRORIST:
Eyewitness in #Reina: “They shot everyone with automatic weapons, there were 3-4, they shot everyone who was alive in the head.”
