Turkey's interior minister Muammer Guler says one of the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing spent 10 days in Turkey 10 years ago but had no other links to the country.

Guler said Friday that Tamerlan Tsarnaev had travelled to Turkey with a Kyrgyz passport, along with three other people with the same last name in July 2003. He said they entered Istanbul on July 9, 2003, and departed the country from Ankara 10 days later.

Guler said Turkey has shared all information it has about the suspects with FBI officials.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was killed in a shootout in Boston. His brother Dzhokhar is on the run.

Turkey, a Muslim country, has taken in hundreds of Chechens fleeing the conflict in Chechnya.
