Turkey Monday said the wanted partner of one of the gunmen behind the terror attacks in France crossed into Syria last week, insisting it was not at fault for failing to detain her.Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Hayat Boumeddiene had crossed into Syria on Jan. 8, the same day that her partner Amedy Coulibaly is suspected of shooting dead a policewoman outside Paris on the second day of the Paris attacks.A Syrian Foreign Ministry official said the Turkish statement clearly shows that Turkey is still a primary corridor for foreign terrorist infiltration to and from Syria, according to the government news agency SANA.Western countries have long accused Turkey of not doing enough to stem the flow of jihadis seeking to join ISIS fighters in neighboring Syria.
