Police Arrest Man Linked to Paris Store Attack

Spanish police have arrested a French man who they believe supplied weapons to Amedy Coulibaly, who attacked a Paris supermarket last January.

Spain'south Interior Ministry said Antoine Denive was arrested on Tuesday in a joint operation with French police in a town near to Malaga.

During the raid two other people were detained, one from Serbia and and the other from Montenegro. 

Authorities suspect the 27-year-old supplied the arms used by Islamist militant Coulibaly, who killed four Jews at a kosher grocery store before he was shot deceased by police.

The day before the supermarket siege Coulibaly had killed a policewoman in Montrouge. 

Denive is suspected of fleeing to France several weeks after the attack and making a base for himself in Malaga, where it's thought he continued his illegal arms dealing using false documents. 

The High Ct in Spain said Denive denied selling weapons to Coulibaly, but reports propose he is willing  to be extradited to France.

The attack on the supermarket happened a few days after two other gunmen shot twelve people at and close the offices of the Charlie Hebdo newspaper in Paris.

Said and Cherif Kouachi forced their way into the building of the satirical publication with assault rifles before killing eleven people and injuring eleven more.

They also shot dead a police officer as they made off.

The brothers were killed by special forces during an assault on a printing factory just exterior Paris where they'd holed up.
