Amedy Coulibaly, the terrorist who stormed a Paris kosher grocery and killed four hostages inside, said he chose the store because “he was targeting Jews,” French BFM-TV reporter Sarah-Lou Cohen says.
Cohen says Coulibaly called the news station in the afternoon.
“He claimed to be part of the Islamic State very clearly,” she says. “He said he had instructions from the caliphate.
“He explained also why he did this: to defend oppressed Muslims, he said, notably in Palestine…and finally he explained his target, why this kosher store — because he was targeting Jews.”
