Before taking part in the Muslim terrorist attacks in France, Amedy Coulibaly made a video in front of an ISIS flag, pledging that what he was about to do would be done on behalf of ISIS as an expression of support for Islamic State Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Washington Post Amedy Coulibaly, the man who killed a policewoman, and probably a jogger before killing four hostages at a Paris supermarket on Friday before he was fatally shot by police, is seen here pledging allegiance to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Speaking in French and occasionally lapsing into broken Arabic, he is shown wearing a flak vest, then a leather jacket and later a traditional African robe while he explains his motives for carrying out the attack and urges other Muslims also to take up arms.
Coulibaly, who also is thought to have fatally shot a French policewoman Thursday, is introduced as Abou Bassir AbdAllah al-Ifriqi and a “soldier of the caliphate.”
