Masharipov said that during the attack wanted to die himself.
The suspect in the terrorist attack in Istanbul new year’s eve, a native of Uzbekistan Abdulqadir Masharipov said that “it would be nice if he was given the death penalty.”
“I wanted to attack Christians in order to avenge their acts committed around the world. My goal was to kill Christians. Abu Shihad, which is in Syria, told me to carry out the attack in Taksim, saying that “Christians” gather in Taksim”, – quotes Masharipova Hurriyet Daily News.
He also said that during the attack wanted to die himself. “When I ran out of ammo, I threw two stun grenades. Third I put the side of his face to commit suicide, but I’m not dead. I survived, but went into the club Reina to die,” said the killer.
We will remind, on new year’s night, a gunman opened fire in a nightclub in Istanbul. He shot a police officer and a civilian at the entrance to the club, and then burst into the room and opened fire. The attack killed 39 people and another forty injured.
