A transcript of a video shot by Amedy Coulibaly, the Islamist gunman who killed four people in a kosher supermarket in Paris on Jan. 9, has been released by a French publication.
Coulibaly reportedly shot a 7-minute, 45-second video of the start of the siege using a GoPro, a small camera designed for use in sports. The recording shows Coulibaly shooting three of the four people he killed during the siege.
The video reportedly shows Coulibaly shouting "nobody move," before grabbing a customer, asking the man his name and then shooting him dead in front of other hostages, according to a report from France's Nouvel Observateur magazine.
He then asks another customer what his origins are. When the man replies “Jewish,” Coulibaly shoots the man dead too.
"So you know why I am here then. Allahu Akbar,” he reportedly told his hostages.
In addition, the magazine reported that the video showed Coulibaly struggling to reload his Kalashnikov rifle, and forcing one of the hostages to help him upload the video shot on his body camera to a computer.
He also reportedly launched into an anti-Semitic tirade when one of the hostages tells him that they have done nothing wrong, according to the BBC.
“You did not? You do not fund [the French government]?” he reportedly said to the woman. “You kill women and children everywhere.”
Coulibaly was killed when French police stormed the supermarket, in Paris' Porte de Vincennes, Jan. 9. In addition to the four people he killed in the supermarket, he is also suspected to have shot and killed a Paris policewoman on Jan. 8.
The siege at the Hyper Cacher supermarket came just two days after Said and Cherif Kouachi killed 12 people in an attack on the Paris offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.
In the days after his death, a video emerged online showing Coulibaly pledging allegiance to the Islamic State group, and describing his attacks as “retribution.”
In the video, Coulibaly says that he acted in concert with the Kouachi brothers, to “have more impact.” Cherif Kouachi told French TV that the brothers, who were killed by French police after a stand-off Jan. 9, were acting on behalf of al Qaeda's Yemeni branch.
