[jwplatform kp65vwXZ]

Amedy Coulibaly, 32, is linked to five deaths in Paris. He is the identified killer of four hostages at a Paris kosher supermarket the day after gunning down a policewoman, Clarissa Jean-Philippe, in the street following the notorious Charlie Hebdo attack. He is one of three terrorists who died and pledged his life to Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, commonly known as ISIL.

His sister, Maïmouna Coulibaly, along with her mother denounce the killings. A dance instructor, the 39-year-old is known nationwide for empowering women with her ‘Booty Therapy’ classes where she teaches Afro-urban dance moves. She has even appeared on “France’s Got Talent (La France a un Incroyable Talent).” Coulibaly is of Malian descent and sets out to empower disenfranchised women. She grew up in an impoverished suburb in Paris, Grigny, in La Grande Borne, which is the American equivalent to public housing projects. Her life is portrayed in the play Hééé Mariamou.
