Around 20 Daesh members in custody over Istanbul airport attack

Around 20 Daesh militants, mainly foreigners, are in custody in connection with an attack last week on Istanbul airport that killed 45 people, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday, Reuters reports.

Two Russian nationals have been identified as suspected Islamic State suicide bombers in the attack that is thought to have been masterminded by a Chechen, Turkish media said on Friday.

"The latest findings point to the Daesh terrorist organisation," Erdogan told Reuters at the Istanbul Ataturk airport, where he visited the attack site.
