MOSCOW, January 13. /TASS/. Russia’s missions in Turkey are taking steps to ensure access to three Russian citizens detained in Antalya, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.

"Russia’s missions in Turkey are making efforts on ensuring access to our citizens and clarifying all the circumstances of the incident," the ministry said in a commentary.

The ministry confirmed reports that Turkey’s law enforcers detained three Russian citizens on January 11 who are suspected of links to the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group.

Turkey’s police said the Russians had refused to contact with the Russian consular staff.

The Dogan news agency reported earlier on Wednesday that the Russians were detained during an anti-terrorist raid against the Islamic State group. Russia’s Consul General Alexander Tolstopyatenko confirmed that three Russian citizens had been detained in Antalya, adding that the reasons were being clarified.

The anti-terrorist raid occurred after Tuesday’s terrorist attack in Istanbul that killed at least 10 people and injured another 15.
