Speaking to reporters, Interior Minister Muammer Güler announced that the two Chechen suspects assumed to be responsible for the Boston Marathon bombing, "had absolutely nothing to do with Turkey."
When the identities of the two suspects in the devastating Boston Marathon bombing and subsequent murder of an MIT police officer and critically wounding another officer, were revealed, allegations also surfaced that they may have entered the United States from Turkey. In order to respond to these claims, Interior Minister Muammer Güler held a news conference at the Swissotel.
Explaining that one out of the two brothers believed to be connected to the Boston bombing, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was born in 1986, arrived to Istanbul on a Kyrgyz passport with three other individuals that had the same surname on July 9, 2003 and departed from Ankara on July 19, 2003, Güler stated, "We believe they were a family. We have established that they had absolutely no connection whatsoever to Turkey.'
