Additionally, a video has surfaced purporting to show the gunman who took several hostages at a Parisian kosher market on Friday, an incident believed to be related to the Charlie Hedbo attack. A man believed to be the gunman is shown pledging allegiance to the Islamic State.

Holder, who traveled to Paris in the wake of the attacks, said the groups pose a threat to several countries. He also announced that the White House would convene an international summit next month to discuss countering violent extremism.
