PARIS (AP) A video shows the gunman who seized hostages in a Paris kosher grocery and killed a policewoman pledging allegiance to the Islamic State group and claiming responsibility for the attacks.
The SITE Intelligence Group said Sunday it had verified the 7 minute long video, which shows Amedy Coulibaly with a gun, exercising and giving speeches in front of an Islamic State emblem.
Coulibaly took over the kosher grocery, demanding freedom for the brothers who carried out the massacre at newspaper Charlie Hebdo. At the time, the brothers were trapped in a printing house near Charles de Gaulle airport.
All three men were killed in nearly simultaneous raids by security forces.
