SUSPECTED ACCOMPLICES OF CHARLIE HEDBO ATTACKERS TO GO ON TRIAL
Written by admin on September 2, 2020
In France, fourteen people are to go on trial over the deadly attack on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo more than five years ago.
Most of the alleged accomplices will stand trial in Paris today, but three will be tried in absentia.
They are accused of helping the militant Islamist attackers who shot dead 12 people in and around Charlie Hebdo’s offices in January 2015.
A third gunman shot dead a policewoman and attacked a Jewish supermarket.
In total, 17 people were killed in a period of just three days. The killings marked the beginning of a wave of jihadist attacks across France that left more than 250 people dead.
