Spain arrests Frenchman who gave arms to Paris supermarket gunman

MADRID - Spanish police arrested a French man who allegedly had supplied the arms used by gunman Amedy Coulibaly, who killed four Jews and a policewoman at a kosher supermarket in Paris in January 2015, Spain's interior ministry said on Wednesday.

In a statement, the ministry said the 27-year-old man from Sainte Catherine in France was arrested in the Malaga area on Tuesday in a joint operation with French police.

Coulibaly had attacked the supermarket a few days after two other gunmen shot 12 people at and near the offices of the Charlie Hebdo newspaper in Paris.
