A team from Greece’s general consulate in Istanbul said on Sunday they didn’t locate any Greek citizens among the injured after visiting several hospitals in the city from the terrorist attack in Istanbul on New Year’s.

Although the identities of the – so far – 39 victims have not all been revealed, consulate authorities have no information about Greek citizens or diaspora being among them. So far Turkish authorities have identified Israelis, Jordanians and Azeris among the 15 foreign nationals who died.

The general consulate also recommended caution to all Greeks visiting or currently living in the city as well as to avoid busy areas.
