    MOSCOW, January 12 (Sputnik) — French police have discovered the hideout of Amedy Coulibaly, the gunman responsible for killing a French police officer and taking people hostage at a kosher shop in Paris, according to ABC News.

    The hideout is located in the outskirts of Paris and was reportedly rented by Coulibaly a week before the incident in the kosher supermarket.

    During its raid, the police found ISIS flags, money and weapons, which allegedly belonged to Coulibaly. However, it remains unclear whether the video, circulating online and depicting Coulibaly vowing its adherence to the Islamic State was also recorded in the place.

    "I pledge allegiance to the emir of the faithful Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi," Coulibaly said on the video, adding that he and Kouachi brothers coordinated their attacks.

    On January 9, Amedy Coulibaly took several people hostage at a kosher shop in eastern Paris. He demanded freedom for the Kouachi brothers, who were responsible for the notorious terrorist attack on the Charlie Hebdo magazine and threatened to shoot down the hostages if police killed them. The attack claimed lives of four people, all of them Jews.
