Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Wednesday morning that his country's security services had identified the terrorist who carried out the New Year's Eve massacre at an Istanbul nightclub in which 39 people were killed and 70 others were wounded.

Cavusoglu made the statement in an interview with Turkey's Anadolu news agency.
