Research Scientist Myriam Benraad at the Paris Science Po University, who has studied terror cells in Paris, warns that a known terrorist cell has revived. She says we can expect more attacks.
The terrorists who attacked Charlie Hedbo and held hostages in two different places came from a group calling itself the Buttes-Charmont. Its name comes from the local park where they trained. The Kouachi brothers, Amedy Coulibaly, and the other terrorists involved, were recruited by Farid Benyettou of the Addawa mosque.
She said: “Coulibaly is part of the same group as the Kouachi brothers. They were part of the same neighbourhood.
“This would confirm this has not been a lone wolf attack. It is the awakening of the terror cell of an old network to jihadi calls to wage war against France. I believe it is in response to calls by Isil for French extremists to carry out attacks on their home soil.
“I think this is just the start.
“I studied Farid Benyettou’s cell in 2005 when Cherif Kouachi failed to get to Syria.
“This cell consisted of no more than 20 people, three others have been imprisoned, not included these three men.
“The leader of the mosque would have guided them initially before they came under Benyettou’s charismatic spell. He was the first major influence for Cherif and the second was meeting terrorist Djamel Beglal while in prison.
