French comedian praises terrorist

Paris: An anti-Semitic French comedian has praised the terrorist who killed four people at a Jewish supermarket in Paris Friday.

"As far as I am concerned, I feel I am Charlie Coulibaly," said Dieudonne M`Bala M`bala, in a statement on his Facebook page after the 1.5 million-strong anti-terrorism rally in the French capital Sunday.

The controversial comedian has faced several convictions in the past for making anti-Semitic comments and jokes.

Amedy Coulibaly took hostages and killed four people at the Hyper Cacher supermarket in eastern Paris Friday before being killed by police. He said he was working for Islamic State and in "synchronisation" with the Kouachi brothers who attacked the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine that left 12 people dead.

Dieudonne had said earlier that he would take part in the Paris march to express his support for freedom of speech.
