Terrorist couple Amedy Coulibaly and Hayat Boumeddiene hatched their sickening plot in a flat they shared in a run-down area on the outskirts of Paris.

Boumeddiene, 26, is still on the run and an international hunt is under way for the former supermarket worker.

She is believed to have fled to join Islamic State fighters in Syria.

She was said to have slipped into the war-torn country from Turkey after flying to Istanbul from Spanish capital Madrid a week before Coulibaly, 32, killed four hostages and shot dead a policewoman in separate attacks in Paris.

She had a return flight booked but failed to show up.

One witness reported seeing her on the Turkey-Syria border on January 8 – the day after Wednesday’s Charlie Hebdo massacre – with the brother of a man known to French intelligence services.

Evil: Coulibaly and Boumeddiene 

The block where she and Coulibaly made their home was surrounded by armed police as police warned Boumeddiene was “armed and dangerous”.

But moments before it was sealed off, the Sunday Mirror gained entry to the complex in the satellite town of Fontenay-aux-Roses.

Neighbours had plastered the entrance plaque with “Je Suis Charlie” stickers, in support of the 12 killed in the Charlie Hebdo attack.

One resident, who declined to be named, told of their shock that the woman in flat 166 was one of the world’s most wanted terrorists.

They said: “I knew both of them but not that well. She always seemed very nice and polite. He was a little quieter.

“I cannot believe she has been involved in anything as terrible as this. It’s shocking.”

Photos emerged of Boumeddiene firing a crossbow while wearing a burka, thought to have been taken in 2010 when she and Coulibaly visited convicted al Qaeda terrorist Djamel Beghal, who was under house arrest in southern France.

French-Algerian Boumeddiene was one of seven children and her mother died when she was just six.

Security chiefs believe she became radicalised after meeting Coulibaly in 2009.

Coulibaly, along with Charlie Hebdo killers Said and Cherif Kouachi, was part of the Buttes-Chaumont network of French Islamists in Paris.

Coulibaly and Cherif Kouachi were committed followers of Beghal, who was once based at the Finsbury Park mosque in north London.

Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said Boumeddiene exchanged more than 500 phone calls with the wife of one of the Kouachi brothers last year.

Questioned by counter-terrorism police after visiting Beghal, Boumedienne said: “When I saw the massacre of the innocents in Palestine, in Iraq, in Chechnya, in Afghanistan or anywhere the Americans sent their bombers, all that – well, who are the terrorists?”

The Kouachis were under police surveillance for five years but it was stopped last July as they were deemed low risk.

A French judicial source said: “Nothing suggested any connection with a radical Islamist movement.”
