Reports: Female accomplice in French attacks may have traveled through Turkey to Syria

Hayat Boumeddiene, the common-law wife of a gunman who took a Paris kosher supermarket hostage on Friday, may now be in Syria, The Associated Press reports.

A Turkish official says authorities believe Boumeddiene flew to Istanbul on Jan. 2, then traveled onward into Syria on Jan. 4.

"She then disappeared," the official adds.

Authorities have said that Boumeddiene is an accomplice of husband Amedy Coulibaly, who was killed when French security forces carried out a raid on the supermarket. Coulibaly's attack was linked to that of Said and Cherif Kouachi, brothers who murdered 12 people at satirical publication Charlie Hebdo's offices on Wednesday.
