Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu travelled into Syria on Sunday to visit a relocated historic tomb inside the country, his office said.

The trip, which was not announced in advance, is the first such visit by a Turkish political leader to the tomb of Suleyman Shah, grandfather of the Ottoman empire's founder Osman I, just 200 metres (650 feet) from the Turkish border inside Syrian territory.
