The night club was packed with 500-600 people. The attacker was believed to have entered the club as santa clause. Special forces were about to raid the club, the attackers whereabouts isn't clear.


Around 500-600 people were thought to have been in the club when the attack happened at around 1:15am local time, broadcaster CNN Turk said.

The club lies on the shore of the Bosphorus Strait in the Ortakoy district, and some jumped into the water to save themselves and were being rescued by police.

The attacker was believed to have entered the nightclub dressed as Santa Claus, private NTV television reported earlier.

Broadcaster CNN Turk initially said the attacker was thought still to be inside the building and that police special forces were preparing to raid it. NTV said the attacker's whereabouts were unclear.

Turkey's under the gun. Is that country being punished for some reason?

ps
No way did one gunman kill 35 people; it's got to be more than one shooter.
