Washington, Jan 1 (IBNS): The United States on Sunday condemned the attack at a night club in Istanbul which left at least 35 people killed.

"The United States strongly condemns the terrorist attack on a night club in Istanbul, Turkey," read a statement issued by the US Department of State.

"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," it said.
