The manhunt continues in Istanbul. Two days after the bombing of the Saint-Sylvestre , which has hit a nightclub on the shores of the Bosphorus, the police proceeded to the arrest of eight people she thinks might be related, one way or another, to the author of the shooting that claimed the lives of 39 people (25 foreigners) and injured 65 individuals. Initially attributed to the kurdish movement, the attack has been claimed by the cell of war of the islamic State on 2 January.
The investigators currently operate several videos where the terrorist appears before and during the slaughter, decked out in a red hat, elf santa Claus and a jacket, which he defeated on the scene of the crime. The police think he acted alone. In the night of 2 and 3 June, a short film featuring a man, short hair, face beardless and mine severe, filming using a mobile, hanging on the end of a pole selfie began to circulate in the press, pro-Erdogan. The police sources claim that this individual is actively being sought but, at this point, still refuse to assign him officially the paternity of the attack. This caution has not prevented several newspapers to present this man of thirty years as the alleged perpetrator of the carnage, still actively sought by the police.
