(JTA) — The widow of the terrorist who killed four Jewish men at a kosher supermarket siege in Paris apparently is in Islamic State territory.

Hayat Boumeddiene, the wife of slain Hyper Cacher gunman Amedy Coulibaly, was interviewed by a magazine run by ISIS, Reuters reported. It was the first evidence that she fled to Syria following the Jan. 8 attack on the kosher market. French authorities began searching for her following the attack.

The ISIS-supported, online French-language magazine Dar al-Islam published an interview with an unnamed woman it said was Coulibaly’s widow. Police killed Coulibaly at the kosher market.

Boumeddiene in the interview confirmed that her husband had been a supporter of the  Islamic State.

She has been shown in photos published in French media wearing a full veil.
