Dozens dead in New Year’s Eve nightclub attack in Istanbul, Turkey

An assailant believed to have been dressed in a Santa Claus costume opened fire at a nightclub in Istanbul during New Year’s celebrations Saturday, killing at least 35 people and wounding 40 others in what the province’s governor described as a terror attack.

Gov. Vasip Sahin said the attacker, armed with a long-barreled weapon, killed a policeman and a civilian outside the club before entering and firing on people partying inside. He did not say who may have carried out the attack.
“Unfortunately (he) rained bullets in a very cruel and merciless way on innocent people who were there to celebrate New Year’s and have fun,” Sahin told reporters. (AP)

Merry Christmas!! <3

During the liberation of the Netherlands, British airman Fred Frazan took the time to bring joy to these Dutch children. Even in time of war, dressing as Santa Claus and delivering gifts may be all you need to put a smile on someone’s face.

Merry Christmas and God bless!
