Islamic State publication claims interview with wife of French attacker Coulibaly

Turkey's foreign minister said Monday Jan.12, 2015 that Boumedienne, wife of Amedy Coulibaly, one of the perpetrators of the terrorist rampage in France last week, crossed into Syria from Turkey on Jan. 8. The Islamic State group has put out publications claiming to have an interview with the widow of the gunman who attacked a kosher supermarket and a police officer, killing five people before he died in a raid by security forces. The text interviews in French and English, published Wednesday and Thursday, did not directly name Hayat Boumeddiene nor show any images of her. It appeared to be the first confirmation from Islamic State that she had joined the group in Syria, as was widely believed after a posthumous video emerged of her husband, Amedy Coulibaly, pledging allegiance to its leader.

The Islamic State group has published what it says is an interview with the widow of the French gunman who attacked a kosher supermarket and a police officer in Paris last month, killing five people before he died in a raid by security forces.

The text interviews in French and English, published Wednesday and Thursday, did not directly name Hayat Boumeddiene nor show images of her. It appeared to be the first confirmation from Islamic State that she had joined the group in Syria, as was widely believed after a posthumous video emerged of her husband, Amedy Coulibaly, pledging allegiance to its leader.

In the stilted responses laced with references to the Quran, she called on women to be patient and make life easier for their men.
