Turkey’s state-run news agency says police in the Mediterranean city of Antalya have detained three Russian nationals in a raid on suspected Islamic State militants.
The Anadolu Agency said anti-terrorism police conducted the raids on Wednesday, a day after an ISIS suicide bomber detonated a bomb in Istanbul’s historic Sultanahmet district, killing 10 foreigners, most of them German tourists.
