In three easy steps, almost as easy as reciting the shahada.
From bikini babe to burka-clad jihadi fighter with a crossbow: ‘Wife’ of Kosher supermarket killer becomes France’s most wanted woman after going on the run
‘Cool and composed’: Boumeddiene never wavered under police cross examination. When told they knew she and Coulbaly had visited Beghal at the same time as Cherif Kouachi and two other convicted terrorists, she replied: ‘We went there for crossbow practice’
Cornered: French police named the hostage taker as Amedy Coulibaly (left), 32, while also claiming a woman named Hayat Boumeddiene (right), 26, is involved
- Hayat Boumeddiene, 26, is the ‘wife’ of Amedy Coulibaly, who killed a policewoman and four hostages in a kosher bakery
- Coulibaly was then killed as commandos stormed building
- But accomplice Boumeddiene is on the loose and police warn she is dangerous
- Brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi also killed as they tried to fight their way out of a print works 25 miles from Paris
Wearing a skimpy bikini with her arms wrapped around her lover’s waist, this is Hayat Boumeddiene before she turned into a jihadi killer’s accomplice and became France’s most wanted woman.
Photographs of the ‘wife’ of the Kosher supermarket hostage killer reveal how she was radicalised by the man she would go on to marry.
Her husband Amedy Coulibaly is dead, one of the three terrorists who brought France to a halt in 48 hours of bloodshed.
Now, 26-year-old Boumeddiene is on the run and is believed to be ‘armed and dangerous’.
Coulibaly died in a hail of bullets along with four hostages in the storming of the Jewish supermarket.
But Boumeddiene may have eluded capture during the confusion as the hostages were running away, police said.
‘Armed and dangerous’: It’s becoming clear that the one-time cashier was radicalised after meeting the man she would marry
