Three Russian citizens have been arrested in Turkey, reportedly on suspicion of links to ISIS.

The news follows yesterday's bombing in Istanbul which killed 10 people and has been blamed on an ISIS suicide bomber.

According to Turkey's Dogan News Agency, the three Russian citizens were arrested in the Antalya province, on the Mediterranean coast. Six other people were arrested and "large numbers of organisational documents" were also reportedly seized in the police raid.

The Russian consulate in Antalya confirmed the arrests, Interfax reports, but complained that the Turkish authorities have refused the detainees any contact with the Russian authorities.

A source in an unnamed government agency told Interfax later today that one of the Russians arrested had previously been sought by law enforcement officers in his homeland and had even been placed on an international watch list.

The other two, the source claimed, had left Russia of their own accord several years ago "with the stated aim of studying in a Middle-Eastern state."
