(Washington, DC) -- The Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia issued the following statement in response to a story in the Daily Mail's MailOnline:

"The Saudi government had no prior information about the Boston bombers.  Therefore, it is not true that any information, written or otherwise, was passed to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) or any other US agency in this regard.  The Saudi government also does not have any record of any application by Tamerlan Tsarnaev for any visa to Saudi Arabia."
