Five Israeli citizens were detained at Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport Wednesday.

The Israelis took off on an Aeroflot flight which landed at 12:15 local time and since then five of them have been detained for questioning, fingerprinting and DNA testing.

After waiting for three hours, the passengers were put in a locked room, without access to the bathroom or food and drink.

They were later informed that they would be returned to Israel without an explanation
