US Official: Paris Market Terrorist Had Camera to Video Attack

By    |   Friday, 30 Jan 2015 11:05 PM

Amedy Coulibaly, the terrorist who killed four people as part of terrorism attacks that rocked Paris earlier this month, recorded seven minutes of the deadly attack at a Paris kosher market with a GoPro camera strapped to his stomach, a U.S. intelligence officer told CNN Friday.

The officer confirmed a report in the French magazine L'Express, which cited a French source's claims that Coulibaly not only had the camera during the Jan. 9 attack, but used a computer at the market to email a copy of the video to someone.

Coulibaly's video, which has reportedly been viewed by French investigators, shows the deaths of three victims, and officials fear that it will be used for propaganda purposes by other terrorists.

"There is a strong probability that this video may have been transmitted to a recipient and not to a traditional media outlet," an investigator told L'Express, saying he fears he'll see the video on the Internet.

Investigators have examined computers that were recovered from the source to try to find if Coulibaly contacted any accomplices after survivors reported he tried to go online with his own computer, but was not able to log on.

They said he then used one of the store's computers, forcing a hostage to help, and inserted a memory card into the computer to open video files.

After his death, police found that Coulibaly had recorded a video pledging his alliance with the Islamic State (ISIS), and say he is also believed to have killed a policewoman the day before he seized the market.

Coulibaly's widow has fled to Syria. Two days before Coulibaly was killed, terrorist brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi attacked the Charlie Hebdo magazine offices, killing 12 people and injuring 11 more.
