‘Market gunman phoned others from siege to urge attacks’

A security source says the gunman who was shot dead by Paris police after taking hostages at a kosher supermarket phoned other people from the scene, urging them to stage further attacks.

Amedy Coulibaly, 32, was killed in the climax of the siege, in which four hostages died.

His 26-year-old wife Hayat Boumeddiene, who escaped the grocery store among the freed hostages, is still being sought by police.

AFP contributed to this report.
