- Story Text: The gunman who killed 39 people in an Istanbul nightclub on New Year's Day has been caught in the city's Esenyurt district, the Hurriyet newspaper website and other media reports said on Tuesday (January 17).
Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it was revenge for Turkish military involvement in Syria.
On Monday (January 16), Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus said the mass shooting was carried out professionally with the involvement of an intelligence organisation and "not just a terrorist organisation's act".
