Thirty Years in Prison for Involvement in Attacks in Paris

One of the suspects in the attacks on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish supermarket in 2015 was sentenced to 30 years in prison on Tuesday.

 

Hayat Boumeddiene, the wife of one of the later murdered perpetrators of the attacks, is said to have played an essential role in the preparations.

“She never distanced herself from her husband’s actions and has become a propaganda tool for Islamic State,” prosecutor.

Twelve people were killed in the attack on the magazine’s editorial staff in January 2015. Boumeddiene’s husband Am├ędy Coulibaly was one of the men who killed four hostages in the kosher supermarket in Paris a day later.

The three were shot by anti-terrorist units.

Fourteen people were charged in the trial for allegedly helping in various ways in preparing the attacks and having been members of a terrorist group. Three of them are fugitives.
