Names released of four victims of terror attack on Paris kosher store

The CRIF umbrella group of French Jewish communities Saturday identified the four victims of the terrorist attack Friday on the Hype Cacher kosher supermarket:

They are:  Yoav Hattab, Philippe Braham, Yohan Cohen and Francois-Michel Saada. “These French citizens were struck down in a cold-blooded manner and mercilessly because they were Jews,” read the CRIF statement. They were shot in the early stages of the seven-hour standoff, which ended when police stormed the shop and killed the Islamist hostage-taker, Amedy Coulibaly.
Seventeen people survived the attack. A vigil in memory of the victims is planned for Saturday night in front of the Hyper Cachet supermarket.
