At 26 years old, Hayat Boumeddiene became the most wanted woman in France for assisting her husband in an Al-Qaeda inspired terror rampage through Paris that killed workers at the satirical Charlie Hebdo weekly newspaper and shoppers at a Kosher grocery store. She was once a bikini-wearing modern woman and a cashier. She has an Algerian background. She became radicalized, altered her first name to sound more Islamic, and was never seen without a veil. Her marriage to Amedy Coulibaly was religious and not state-recognized. She and her husband are known to have traveled to Malaysia and likely received weapons training in Yemen.
