Isis has claimed responsibility for a mass shooting at an Istanbul nightclub as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he will “fight to the end against terror”.

The attacker, who is still at large, opened fire at a crowd of hundreds of people celebrating New Year’s Eve at the Reina nightclub, killing at least 39 people and injuring dozens more. The brutal onslaught lasted seven minutes in which time the armed man fired more than 100 bullets into the crowd. It is thought he then changed his clothes and disappeared.

As many as two-thirds of those killed in the attack were foreign nationals.

The victims include people from Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Lebanon and Libya, according to a Turkish government minister. Israel confirmed one of its citizens, 19-year-old Leanne Nasser, was also among the dead.

The extremist militant group has released a statement hailing the actions of a “heroic soldier”, which reads: “In continuation of the blessed operations that Islamic State is conducting against the protector of the cross, Turkey, a heroic soldier of the caliphate struck one of the most famous nightclubs where the Christians celebrate their apostate holiday.
