ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Relatives waited outside Istanbul's Forensics institute on Monday (January 1) to identify and collect bodies of the victims of a gun attack at one of Istanbul's well-known nightclubs on New Year's Eve. A gunman opened fire on New Year revellers at a packed nightclub on the shores of Istanbul's Bosphorus waterway on Sunday (January 2) killing at least 39 people, including many foreigners, then fled the scene. Nationals of Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Lebanon, Libya, Israel and Belgium were among those killed, officials said. France said three of its citizens were wounded. Turkey is part of the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State and launched an incursion into Syria in August to drive the radical Sunni militants from its borders. It also helped broker a fragile ceasefire in Syria with Russia.
