Paris Kosher Grocery Reopens After Massacre

The kosher supermarket on the edge of Paris that was the site of a bloody hostage situation in January will reopen Sunday.

Hyper Cacher, which was badly damaged in the attack, has been renovated and restaffed, The Times of Israel reported.

On Jan. 9, two days after the shooting at Paris’ Charlie Hebdo magazine that left 12 dead, Muslim terrorist Amedy Coulibaly killed four Jewish hostages at the Hyper Cacher market before being killed by police who stormed the building.

The market, located in the Port de Vincennes neighborhood in eastern Paris, is part of the Hyper Cacher chain of kosher markets in France and Italy.
