Abdulgadir Masharipov was arrested miles from the club where he massacred young revellers
Vile jihadis have promised to cause more devastations in president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s nation after pictures were broadcast of Abdulgadir Masharipov.
Brainwashed extremist Masharipov was caught by police in Istanbul's Esenyurt district after over two weeks on the run.
The Uzbek national, who was operating under the alias Ebu Muhammed Horasani, had stormed the Reina nightclub in Istanbul on New Year’s Eve.
He arrived by taxi and shot dead police officers, security, young mothers and the children of well known bankers as they partied in the waterside club.

After military training in Afghanistan, he sprayed 180 bullets into the crowd, reloaded his weapon, shot again and got into a taxi to make his escape.
Weeks later, on January 16, a manhunt involving around 1,000 officers resulted in a task force swooping on a council owned house just 25 miles form the club.
