08 11 月 The high-profile spouses of ISIS killers usually have surprising backgrounds from bikini-wearing sun worshipers to band that is guitar-toting.
ISTANBUL—On the CCTV footage released by Turkish police, the widow of 1 associated with the Islamic fanatics accountable for last week’s terror rampage in Paris comes across as prim, even drab, as she goes through passport control during the airport here.
Hayat Boumeddiene’s tightly drawn white headscarf and hooded coat is a cultural world away from the scanty bikini she was wearing in a photograph that showed her on a beach fondly clutching future assassin Amedy Coulibaly. The vacation snap was taken before 2009, when she began to cover herself up with scarves and veils.
The transfer is startling from sun-worshipper and eager holidaymaker to your buttoned-up moll of an assassin that is islamic.
The 26-year-old looks giddily in love cuddling Coulibaly—a display of public affection hardly commensurate with the puritanical strictures of Salafi jihadis.
