Religious nuts, part of a game plan. Great shame.

Oh fucking hell, those poor people, so 2017 starts as it will go on.
May they rest in peace.

Oh shit

On the positive side security in the U.K.appears to have held tight tonight.

What an awful thing on turkey though.

Horrible. Poor poor people

Oh no, this is horrible.

Bloody hell. Why do people have to be so hateful.

It has so far RJ, the Istanbul attack was 1:30 their time, so they probably thought same. Those poor people, it's so depressing there's just no let up for them.

Apparently people were jumping into the Bosphorus river to escape.

Fucking bastards angry

MrTumblesbitch Sun 01-Jan-17 00:43:42

I've just seen this- I actually checked the news to make sure all was okay before I went to sleep. Those poor people, I hope the rest of Europe stays safe tonight

I just saw in news ten mins ago and it's was saying no fatalities yet,so sad to hear it's over 35 now sad

Cantgetmyoldnameback Sun 01-Jan-17 00:54:30

BBC News have been reporting 35 dead for a while now. It always takes some time to get accurate numbers at atrocities like this, I guess. Reporting the club would've been packed with many hundreds of people there.

A friend just told me on kik 😢 What a terrible start to the New Year.

There were apparently two shooters dressed as Santas.

Reina is a beautiful club. I have been there many times, years ago.

By the way, the Bosphorus is a sea not a river.

Oh no sad

Cantgetmyoldnameback Sun 01-Jan-17 01:03:22

Oops, thanks for the correction re the Bodphorus.

I realised earlier that I felt no shock on hearing the news, just sadness. These attacks seem almost invitable now.

CoteDAzur Sun 01-Jan-17 01:07:50

Apparently there was intelligence about a possible attack in Reina tonight, which is why there was police at the door. He was the first to be shot as the gunmen entered.

Terrible - Reina is such a fabulous restaurant/club. Those poor people & their families. What a way for 2017 to start.

Absolutely horrendous, RIP to al those who lost their lives and healing thoughts to those injured and dealing with the loss of their loved ones.

Horrendous. May God rest their souls in peace.
