Turkish folk singer Ibrahim Tatlises is fighting for his life in hospital after he was seriously injured in a shooting in Istanbul.
The 59-year-old musician was reportedly gunned down in the early hours of Saturday morning (12Mar11) as he left a television studio in the city with his spokeswoman, Buket Cakici.
A bullet pierced his skull and surgeons performed a four-hour operation in a bid to stabilise his condition.
Chief surgeon Caglar Cuhadaroglu tells the Afp, "His life is still in danger but the situation has improved since he arrived at hospital."
Cakici was shot in the neck in the incident, but is now said to be stable.
Tatlises remains in an intensive care unit, while police have launched a hunt for the gunman.
