A Turkish court jailed suspects pending trial on Tuesday, in connection with last week's suicide bombing attack on Istanbul's main airport that killed 45 people and wounded hundreds, state media said.
The arrest of the suspects, 11 of them foreigners, brought the number of those remanded in custody over the attack to 30 after 13 were sent to jail on Sunday, state-run Anadolu Agency reported.
The latest 17 to be held were accused of "membership of an armed terrorist organization", the private Dogan news agency said.
