Turkey mourns after Istanbul terror attack

Carnations lie on the ground near the scene of the Dec. 31 shooting attack in Istanbul, as family and friends began attending funerals for its victims. Turkey’s state-run news agency says police have detained eight people in connection with the incident. The gunman, who escaped after carrying out the attack, wasn’t among the eight. The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the violence, which killed 39 people, most of them foreigners.
