Istanbul nightclub massacre

A picture taken on January 17, 2017 shows a makeshift memorial with flowers, Turkish flags and pictures of victims in front of the Reina nightclub in Istanbul, a day after Turkish police arrested the suspected attacker. A 34-year-old Uzbek man suspected of mowing down 39 people at an Istanbul nightclub on New Year's Eve confessed today to the massacre, Turkish authorities said. In a dramatic assault in the early hours of Tuesday morning, Turkish police raided an Istanbul apartment and detained Abdulgadir Masharipov after a massive weeks-long manhunt. / AFP PHOTO / OZAN KOSE
