Two arrested over Paris supermarket attack

Two people have been arrested on suspicion of helping provide guns to the man who attacked a kosher supermarket in Paris in January.

The man and woman were arrested in northern France on Tuesday, nearly a year after the attacks on the Charlie Hebdo newspaper and kosher store left 17 people dead, the Paris prosecutor's office said.

Amedy Coulibaly, the store attacker, killed four people inside the market and a policewoman before dying in a shoot-out with police.

The prosecutor's office confirmed that one of those arrested is Claude Hermant, a mercenary, while the other is his partner.
