The ISIS wannabe who slaughtered four people and wounded almost two dozen others in Vienna sent videos of the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris to suspected accomplices, according to a report.
Kujtim Fejzulai, 20, the radicalized Islamist behind the attack in the Austrian capital, sent the graphic footage from the 2015 attack to two unnamed associates as police investigate whether this may have been a call to arms, the Sun reported.
Two heavily armed Islamist militants forced their way into the offices of Charlie Hebdo, a satirical weekly, where they shot dead 12 people and injured 11 others on Jan. 7, 2015.
The German daily Bild reported that authorities were investigating the two people who received the video sent by Fejzulai, who was killed after he carried out his attack in Vienna on Monday night, according to the Sun.
The Charlie Hebdo link comes as the French publication has made headlines again after it republished controversial cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad that Muslims deem blasphemous.
A knife-wielding assailant who shouted “Allahu akbar!” recently killed three people at a church in the French city of Nice, while a Chechen man killed a teacher in Paris as punishment for showing students cartoons of the Prophet.
French President Emmanuel Macron, who has defended the cartoons as a matter of principle, denounced the attack in Vienna as “yet another vile act of terrorism,” the Sun reported.
