Turkey has established the identity of the man who killed 39 people in an attack on an Istanbul nightclub on new year's day.

The country’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said police have arrested more people in connection with the murder but the attacker himself remains at large.

The gunman shot dead a police officer and a civilian at the entrance to the exclusive Reina nightclub on Sunday.

Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack saying it was revenge for Turkish military involvement in Syria.

Police detained 27 people as part of investigations in the western city of Izmir on Wednesday.
