ANKARA, Aug. 8 (Xinhua) -- A family of three, with proved links to the Islamic State (IS), were arrested in Turkish capital Ankara over attempt to make explosive, local media reported on Tuesday.
The suspects were detained on July 17 in Ankara's Etimesgut district, after the semi-finished bomb accidentally exploded in their house here, Hurriyet Daily News reported.
They were found making triacetone triperoxide, or TATP, as Yuksel K., the man of the family and a technician, had obtained materials needed from the market.
The Ankara court ruled for their arrest after the authorities submitted documents verifying the suspects' relation to Islamic State (IS) group.
The police had found various publications belonging to IS at the suspects' residence and carried out investigations, which verified their links to the group.
