Two suspects on a motorcycle were detained at Istanbul's Ataturk International Airport after they refused to stop and police shot in the air at them, the city's governor said Sunday.
Istanbul Governor Vasip Sahin tweeted early Sunday morning that "there were no weapons or explosives on them."
Vehicles were stopped from entering or leaving the airport during the pursuit of the suspects. Turkey's state-run Anadolu news agency said traffic resumed after police detonated a bag on the suspects' motorcycle in a controlled explosion. The bag did not contain explosives.
The suspects have prior robbery records, according to the agency.
Turkish Airlines tweeted that departures from Ataturk Airport, the third busiest in Europe, continued on schedule.
