Al Qaeda has threatened France with more terror attacks after 17 people were killed at Charlie Hebdo’s offices and at a Jewish supermarket.
The warning came as President Francois Hollande admitted the threats “weren’t over” and police hunting a female suspect suggested there could be a larger terrorist cell planning further atrocities.
A sharia official from al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), Harith al Nadhari, said in a video: “It is better for you to stop your aggression against the Muslims, so perhaps you will live safely.
“If you refuse but to wage war, then wait for the glad tiding.”
AQAP has claimed it directed brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi in the attack on Charlie Hebdo “as revenge for the honour” of the Prophet Mohammed.
The gunman killed by police at a kosher supermarket in Paris has told how he “co-ordinated” with the Charlie Hebdo killers and was a member of the Islamic State (IS) group.
Amedy Coulibaly’s call to France’s BFMTV station emerged after gunfire and explosions marked the violent conclusion to two hostage-takings 30 miles (48km) apart.
Just minutes separated the series of blasts at the Paris store and those that destroyed a warehouse in Dammartin-en-Goele, where the Kouachi brothers were holed up.
