Sidi Ahmed Ghlam
Place of Birth: Algeria;
Sidi Ahmed Ghlam is a 29-year-old Algerian man, charged for murder and attempted terrorist murder. He is facing life in prison for killing a woman and trying to bomb a church near Paris the capital city of France.
Ghlam testified at his trial that at the time of the alleged crimes he had “embraced” Islamic State ideology.
He expressed regret over choosing that path, but denied killing the woman outside the church in the Paris suburb of Villejuif.
He was arrested after shooting himself in the leg and calling an ambulance.
Ghlam’s sponsors in Syria were believed to be linked to major deadly attacks in France that year, including one at a kosher supermarket in January and the almost simultaneous attacks on the Bataclan concert hall, Paris cafes and the national stadium on Nov. 13, 2015.
He was on the radar of Algerian and French authorities for his proximity to Islamic State operatives before the failed April 2015 bombing plot at the center of his conviction.
