Paris kosher supermarket siege: Ten people arrested over attack
Ten people have been arrested in connection with a terrorist attack on a kosher store in Paris where a gunman shot dead hostages.
Paris prosecutors said the suspects had been detained on suspicion of supplying weapons to Amedy Coulibaly.
shot dead four hostages at the Hypercacher supermarket
in Porte de Vincennes, in eastern Paris, and a woman police officer in another incident before he was killed in a shootout with police.
The 9 January 2015 attack took place two days after brothers Cherif and Said Kouachi shot dead 12 people at satirical magazine
Charlie Hebdo's offices
in the French capital.
Most of those murdered were journalists and cartoonists.
The pair went on the run after the massacre and were found hiding in a warehouse in Dammartin-en-Goele, 18 miles northeast of Paris, with a 26-year-old male hostage.
They came out firing and were shot dead by special forces officers, while the hostage was freed.
All three attackers knew each other, and Coulibaly had threatened to kill his hostages if police moved in on the brothers at the warehouse.
Commandos stormed the supermarket minutes after the Kouachi brothers' stand-off was brought to a violent end.
Prosecutors said the arrests took place on Monday and Tuesday into Wednesday.
The suspects are being questioned by police investigating the two attacks.
Detectives are reportedly looking into possible links between the attacks and suspects in Belgium.
Shortly after the attacks, Belgian authorities detained a person for arms dealing and said they were investigating whether he had supplied Coulibaly with weapons to carry out his shootings.
