OTTAWA: Canadian authorities are working with French police to help find the recipient of a gruesome selfie purportedly taken by an Islamist suspected of decapitating his boss in France, officials said Saturday. Sources close to the investigation into Friday’s attack near Lyon say Yassin Salhi, a 35-year-old married father-of-three, sent a picture of himself with the severed head via the WhatsApp messaging service to a Canadian number. “Though I can’t comment on operational aspects of national security, I can say that we are helping French authorities in their investigation,” said Jean-Christophe de Le Rue, spokesman for Canadian public safety minister Steven Blaney.
