    The German Foreign Ministry is verifying information on two people, the residents of Bavaria, who were killed in the terrorist attack in Turkish city of Istanbul as one of them had the German citizenship, the ministry’s spokesman said Monday.

    BERLIN (Sputnik) —Other three German nationals have been wounded in the attack and are being provided with medical care, the spokesman said.

    "One of the victims definitely had Turkish and German citizenship. The other one – the Turkish [citizenship], but this information should still be verified. Both citizens used to live in Bavaria," Martin Schaefer told journalists in Berlin.

    At least 39 people were killed, including more than 20 foreigners, and 65 injured as a result of the attack on Istanbul's Reina nightclub. The attacker is said to have opened fire from a Kalashnikov assault rifle. The manhunt is underway.
