PARIS (Sputnik) - France's counter-terrorism unit (SDAT) has detained a 37-year-old man as part of an investigation into the January 2015 terror attacks in Paris and its surrounding areas, the BFMTV broadcaster reported.
The suspect was detained on June 12 in the Paris region and remanded to police custody, the BFMTV broadcaster reported.
According to the TV channel, the man is suspected of having provided logistical support to Amedy Coulibaly, who was responsible for the hostage situation at a kosher supermarket in Paris in January, by helping him gain access to guns.
