There appears to be a Canadian connection to the French terrorist attack Friday that saw a man's severed head posted on a fence.
Citing French authorities The Guardian reports that the main suspect, Yassin Salhie, took a selfie with his victim and then forwarded the image to a Canadian mobile number.
One of the officials said the selfie was forwarded via WhatsApp, the popular instant messaging system, to a phone number in Canada. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing.
Jean-Christophe de Le Rue, a spokesman for Canada’s public safety minister, confirmed Canadian authorities were involved in the case.
“While I cannot comment on operational matters of national security, we are assisting the French authorities with their investigation,” he said.
He declined to comment further on details of the investigation.
The Guardian also reports that the owner of the Canadian phone number is believed to be in Syria at the moment, likely in ISIS controlled territory.
