A MAN RESEMBLING one of the Paris attackers claims to be IS member in posthumous video that has emerged today, according to newswire AFP.

The video featuring a figure resembling Amedy Coulibaly — the man who staged the deadly siege in a Kosher supermarket on Friday — emerged online this morning.

It follows a week of terror attacks in France that have claimed 17 victims. Three gunmen also died.

The video’s release comes as hundreds of thousands of people — including many world leaders — prepare to march through Paris as part of a massive ‘unity’ rally.

Speaking into the camera, the man says he “came out against the police”, while a text playing over the image confirms he killed a policewoman in southern Paris on Thursday and attacked the supermarket the following day.
