At least 35 people have been killed and 40 injured after an armed man entered a famous nightclub in Istanbul and opened fire.

According to Turkish authorities, one terrorist dressed in a Santa Claus costume entered Reina nightclub before opening fire. Among the dead is one police officer, said Istanbul’s governor Vasip Sahin.

The attack took place at 01:30AM local time, less than two hours after Turkey celebrated the start of 2017.

Turkey has faced a number of deadly terrorist attacks in 2016 and tonight’s attack is likely to increase tensions in the city. The majority of terrorist attacks, which have included an attack on Istanbul’s airport, have been carried out by ISIS or Kurdish rebels.
