The Paris prosecutor’s office says two people have been arrested on suspicion of helping provide guns to the man who attacked a kosher supermarket in January.

The man and woman were arrested Tuesday in northern France, nearly a year after the attacks on the Charlie Hebdo newspaper and kosher store left 17 people dead.The prosecutor’s office confirmed that one of those arrested is Claude Hermant, a known mercenary.

The store terrorists, Amedy Coulibaly, shot a jogger on January 7,  killed a policewoman and wounded a street sweeper the next day, and on January 9, killed four Jews inside the kosher supermarket, Hy”d, before dying in a shootout with police.

On other fronts, a 29-year-old man was arrested Tuesday morning in connection with last month’s deadly terror attacks in Paris, a spokesperson for the prosecutor’s office told CNN.
