CRETEIL, France - One of the three extremist gunmen who waged attacks in Paris this month was buried Friday near the capital, police sources said, after his country of origin Mali refused to have him interred there.

The sources, who wished to remain anonymous, said Amedy Coulibaly - who killed a policewoman and four Jews during the January 7-9 attacks - was buried in the Muslim section of the Thiais cemetery in the Paris region.
