Milton mother identified as Canadian killed in attack on Turkish nightclub
Global Affairs Canada has released the name of the Canadian woman killed in the New Year's Eve attack on a nightclub in Istanbul, Turkey.
The lone Canadian victim of the shooting was 29-year-old Alaa Al-Muhandis, who is reportedly survived by her husband and two children in Milton.
A friend is quoted as saying she'd recently started an event-planning business.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau confirmed late Sunday that a Canadian was among the 39 people killed and 70 wounded, many of them foreign tourists, in what he called a ``vicious attack.''
He said Canada grieves the senseless loss and remains steadfast in its determination to work with allies and partners to fight terrorism.
