According to the Anadolu news agency, citing Ankara governor Ercan Topaca, the two suspects, aged between 25 and 30, were killed by the police after attempting to engage in a gunfight with the officers.
The location of the suspects was disclosed to the police by the third man, who has been arrested in Istanbul and confessed to being a member of the ISIS and planning a terrorist attack, the media added.
