World Bulletin / News Desk

Thirteen suspects linked to the Istanbul airport terror attack were remanded in custody by a court in Istanbul on Sunday.

The defendants, including three foreigners, were jailed pending trial by a judge at Bakirkoy Peace Court, a security source said on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.

They are charged with membership of a terrorist organization and abetting murder through helping to plan the attack.

Earlier Sunday, Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said 29 people had been arrested in connection with Tuesday’s gun and bomb attack at Ataturk International Airport that left 44 dead and more than 200 injured.
