Ten suspected DAESH terrorists, believed to be linked to the recent bombing attack in Istanbul, were remanded into custody after a court appearance in Istanbul on Sunday, Turkish judicial sources reported.

Ten people – mostly German tourists – were killed in a suicide bomb attack took place in Istanbul on Tuesday morning while 15 were injured.

The Criminal Court of Peace released six other suspects on bail, but imposed a travel ban on them.

The suspects were accused of "intentional killing" and "being a member of an armed terror organisation."

Since the bombing, security forces have arrested dozens of people across Turkey, including three Russian nationals, for alleged links with DAESH.

Turkey has suffered several attacks recently from ultra-left wing groups as well as DAESH. Meanwhile, a renewed campaign of terror attacks in the country’s southeast by the PKK terror organisation has claimed almost 300 lives.
