    Eleven foreign nationals suspected of involvement in the recent terrorist attack in Istanbul have been detained, raising the total number of detainees to 24, Haberturk television reported Friday.

    ANKARA (Sputnik) — On Tuesday evening, three suicide blasts rocked the international terminal of Istanbul's Ataturk international airport killing over 40 people.

    Initial indications suggest that Daesh is responsible for the terrorist attack, though the investigation is still underway.
