Two foreign nationals suspected of being connected to the killing of 39 people on New Year’s night in Istanbul, Turkey have been detained at Istanbul’s Ataturk international airport. The two were taken into custody at the airport’s international flights terminal. The pair’s cell phones and luggage had been checked before they were taken to Istanbul’s main police headquarters.

No information on their nationalities was available.

The recently reported arrests bring the total number of apprehended suspects to fourteen. Earlier on Tuesday, the Turkish media reported that twelve people had been detained as part of the ongoing manhunt.
