ISTANBUL (CBS) — A sea of ambulances rushed to Reina Nightclub where at least 35 are dead and 40 injured after a New Year’s terror attack.

Authorities in Istanbul, Turkey say at least one gunman dressed as Santa Clause shot his way into a nightclub before opening fire on 500 New Year’s Eve club revelers. The city’s governor is now calling the mass murder a terror attack.
