French authorities have arrested two suspects with possible ties to the terrorist who carried out an attack on the Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket in Paris earlier this year.

An “acknowledged mercenary” and his partner have been arrested in connection with the deadly attack in January on a kosher supermarket in Paris that left four people dead.

The man and woman arrested Tuesday are accused of helping to provide guns to Amedy Coulibaly in his siege of the Hyper Cacher on a busy Friday nearly a year ago.

Four Jewish men – Yohan Cohen, 22; Yoav Hattab, 21; Phillipe Braham, 45, and Francois-Michel Saada, 55 – were murdered at the supermarket by ISIS-linked radical Islamist terrorist Amedy Coulibaly on January 9, two days after Muslim brothers Cherif and Said Kouachi murdered 12 people in an attack at the headquarters of the satirical Charlie Hebdo magazine.
