The first pictures of two of the four hostages killed in yesterday’s kosher supermarket siege in Paris have emerged.
Yohan Cohen, 22, Yoav Hattab, 21, Philippe Braham, in his forties, and François-Michel Saada, believed to be in his sixties, were the four hostages killed in the attack, French Jewish organisation Crif confirmed.
Pictures of Mr Hattab, a Tunisian, and Mr Cohen can be revealed, 24 hours after the siege came to a climax as armed police raided the Jewish grocery.
All four men were murdered by Islamic terrorist Amedy Coulibaly, including one who is said to have snatched one of the extremist’s guns and turned it on the hostage taker – only to find that the weapon had jammed.
The dramatic account was revealed by a survivor who fled the shoot-out as armed police officers and soldiers raided the store yesterday.
Mickael B, as he wishes to be known, was held in the store with his three-year-old son when the fellow hostage suddenly grabbed the weapon which had been left on the counter and tried to fire it at terrorist Amedy Coulibaly.
But, after discovering the gun had been left there because it was malfunctioning, the extremist shot and killed the heroic hostage.
