Famous Turkish singer shot and in critical condition

Famous Turkish singer Ibrahim Tatlises is in critical condition after he was shot in the head in an armed attack in Istanbul last Sunday night.

Unidentified gunmen opened fire on the singer as he was leaving the private Beyaz TV channel building. Tatlises was with his assistant who was also injured in the attack.

The star underwent surgery at the Maslak Acibadem Hospital and according to his doctor is now out of critical condition but there is still a 10 per cent risk of death from his injuries.

Tatlıses’ fans have surrounded the hospital and impatiently wait for the singer to say a couple of words for them. However, the doctors have said that it is too early for that.


  1. I was very sad when my Turkish husband told me........about Ibrahim being shot. Just horrible that someone would do this. I've always enjoyed listening to his music, he has a great voice.
