Four people including a policewoman are in custody over links to the attacks that terrorised Paris earlier this year, French police and security officials said.

The two officials said one man who was detained had ties to Amedy Coulibaly, the gunman who killed a policewoman on January 8 and then four more people at a kosher supermarket on January 9 before being killed by security forces.

They said the man’s girlfriend, a policewoman, is also in custody.

The officials had no details about the two others in custody.

Nobody besides three dead gunmen have been linked directly to the January 7-9 attacks at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and the market, which left 20 people dead, including the gunmen.
