Gunmen Dressed As Santa Claus Injure Dozens in Istanbul on New Year's

UPDATE (9:59 p.m. ET): The U.S. State Department has released the following statement condemning the attack.

The United States strongly condemns the terrorist attack on a night club in Istanbul, Turkey. We extend our condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims and to the people of Turkey, as well as our hopes for the quick recovery for the wounded. We will remain in close touch with Turkish authorities throughout the investigation.

We stand in solidarity with our NATO Ally Turkey in combating the ongoing threat of terrorism. Sadly, this heinous attack is only the latest effort to kill and maim innocent civilians. These attacks only reinforce our strong determination to work with the Government of Turkey to counter the scourge of terrorism.
