Hayat Boumeddiene crossed into Syria one day after the deadly attacks at Charlie Hebdo headquarters.
Officials released video Monday of Boumeddiene at the airport in Turkey.
The suspected female accomplice of Islamist militants behind attacks in Paris was in Turkey five days before the killings and crossed into Syria on Jan. 8, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu was cited on Monday by the state-run Anatolian News Agency as saying.
French authorities launched a search for 26-year-old Hayat Boumeddiene after French anti-terrorist police killed her partner Amedy Coulibaly in storming a Jewish supermarket where he had taken hostages, describing her as armed and dangerous.
Anatolian, on its website, cited Cavusoglu as saying in an interview she arrived in Istanbul from Madrid on Jan. 2.
“There is footage (of her) at the airport. Later on, she stayed at a hotel with another person and crossed into Syria on January 8. We can tell that based on telephone records,” he said.
Those dates would put Boumeddiene in Turkey before the violence in Paris began, and leaving for Syria while the attackers were still on the loose.
