The widow of a terrorist who was gunned down during an attack on a Paris supermarket last month is now residing in Islamic State territory, the terror group claims, in a new issue of its French-language magazine.
Hayat Boumeddiene is France’s most-wanted woman after her husband, Amedy Coulibaly, killed a policewoman in Paris and then shot and killed four shoppers the following day at a kosher grocery store.
The terror group’s French-language magazine, Dar al Islam, has published an interview that shows Boumeddiene is in the group’s territory in Syria and Iraq, Sky News reports.
When asked about her purported journey to the group’s stronghold, she said, "I did not encounter any difficulties... it is good to live in the land that is governed by the laws of God."
There has been no independent confirmation regarding the authenticity of the interview.
The magazine, titled, ‘May Allah Curse France,’ reportedly shows a picture of the Eiffel Tower, according to Sky News.
Turkish officials said Boumeddiene stayed at a hotel in Istanbul with another person before she vanished on January 8.
Her last phone signal was from the Turkish border town of Akcakale, where she is believed to have crossed over into Islamic State territory in Syria.
