Paris grocery hostage-taking: Family of slain Islamic radical Amedy Coulibaly condemn attacks

PARIS (AFP) - The mother and sisters of slain Islamic radical Amedy Coulibaly condemned his attacks on France, offering their "sincere condolences" to the families of the victims, according to a statement sent to AFP on Saturday.

"We condemn these acts. We absolutely do not share these extreme ideas. We hope there will not be any confusion between these odious acts and the Muslim religion," they wrote.

Coulibaly was killed by police on Friday after seizing a Jewish supermarket in Paris where he shot four hostages dead.

A day earlier he killed a policewoman in Montrouge, south of the capital.
