    Four men are facing preliminary charges later on Tuesday, suspected of having links to Amedy Coulibaly, a gunman who killed four people in the kosher shop on January 9.

    MOSCOW, January 20 (Sputnik) – Four men have been arrested and will face charges later on Tuesday, suspected of having links to a gunman, who killed four people in the kosher shop in eastern Paris, France24 reports.

    The men, between the ages of 22 and 28, will appear in court later on Tuesday. No further details are available yet, the source says.

    According to French media, the four men are suspected of having links with Amedy Coulibaly, the kosher shop gunmen who killed four Jews on January 9.

    Last week, another five men were arrested as part of the investigation into the Paris terrorist attacks; however, they were released overnight without charges.

    So far, nobody has been charged in the January 7-9 attacks, in France’s deadliest terrorist attacks in decades, France24 says.

    A series of terrorist attacks in Paris began on January 7, when two gunmen, identified as brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi, walked into the editorial office of satirical Charlie Hebdo magazine and killed 12 people. Following a two-day manhunt, the attackers were killed by the French police. On January 9, Amedy Coulibaly killed four Jews in the kosher food shop in eastern Paris.
