11th German citizen dies following ISIL attack in Istanbul
AA photoA 63-year-old German woman who was injured in a jihadist suicide attack in Istanbul’s Sultanahmet neighborhood two weeks ago has succumbed to her injuries while receiving treatment in a Berlin hospital.
A police spokeswoman confirmed the death of Birgit Glorius to the German newspaper Berliner Kurier.
The woman’s husband, 72-year-old Adolf Jürgen Glorius, was immediately killed in the attack.
A Saudi-born Syrian national, Nabil Fadli, conducted the suicide attack against a German tour group on the morning of Jan. 12 in the vicinity of the Hippodrome in Sultahahmet. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) was blamed for the assault, its fourth on targets in Turkey following attacks last year in Diyarbakır, Suruç and Ankara.
