ISTANBUL - A statement from the Islamic State group describes Turkey as "the servant of the cross" and says the Istanbul nightclub attack came because that's where "Christians were celebrating their pagan feast."

In claiming responsibility for the attack that killed 39 people, the statement says it was in "revenge for God's religion and in response to the orders" of IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi."
