Hayat Boumeddiene, the suspected female accomplice of Islamist militants behind last week's attacks in Paris, was in Turkey when the violence began but crossed into Syria on Jan. 8, according to Turkey's state-run news agency.

Reuters reported Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu as saying in comments posted on  Anatolian's website on Monday that Boumeddiene arrived at an Istanbul airport on Jan. 2 via Madrid and stayed in a hotel.

Those dates would put her in Turkey before the violence in Paris began, and leaving for Syria while the attackers were still on the loose.

Seventeen people, including journalists and policemen, were killed in three days of violence that began with a shooting attack on the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo on Jan. 7, and ended with a hostage-taking at a kosher supermarket on Friday. The three gunmen were also killed.

French police are searching for Boumeddiene, the 26-year-old partner of one of the attackers, describing her as "armed and dangerous".

Cavusoglu said as soon as Turkey identified the whereabouts of Boumeddiene, it passed the information to French authorities.
