Four men held for links to Paris Jewish store gunman

Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said Wednesday that four men are in custody in connection with the 20 terrorist murders in Paris two weeks ago. Three said they met Islamic State gunman Ahmed Coulibaly in prison. He was shot dead after murdering four Jews in the Hyper Casher store and a policewoman. The detained men are believed to have provided Coulibaly with logistic support and purchasing “equipment” for his use.
Molins said the attacks on the supermarket and satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo were coordinated.
