Amedy Coulibaly, the terrorist who killed a policewoman and four shoppers at a kosher supermarket in Paris in January, received orders for the killing spree via email, a French media report revealed Tuesday.
The message allegedly instructed Coulibaly to pick targets “on the outskirts [of Paris] if there is a problem in the centre” and to film his actions.
BFMTV reported that the sender also suggested that he would look after Coulibaly’s girlfriend, Hayat Boumeddiene.
The 26-year-old woman is believed to have fled to Syria a few days before the Paris attacks.
The mysterious email to Coulibaly, moved to his computer’s trash folder as instructed, came from an account from a US-based email service, the report said. Read the full story here.
