Washington: A US intelligence official has said that the gunman who killed four people at a kosher market in eastern Paris this month recorded the attack on a camera. According to CNN, the information backed up a report by Eric Pelletier, a national security reporter at the French magazine L’Express, who wrote that Amedy Coulibaly recorded seven minutes of the attack, including the moments when he killed three people.

Pelletier said that a source told him that Coulibaly managed to email a copy of the attack video using a computer in the store before he was killed by police. Investigators reportedly believe that the attacker could have emailed the video to a recipient and not to a traditional media outlet.

The report further said that French investigators have examined computers recovered from the grocery store and are looking into what accomplices Coulibaly may have connected with around that time.
