translated from Spanish: Suspects of taking part in Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack go to trial in Paris

Thirteen men and a woman will have to appear on Wednesday in the trial for the 2015 attacks on the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and a kosher supermarket in Paris that marked the beginning of a wave of violence by the Islamic State group in Europe.Seventeen people and the three gunmen were killed during the three days of attacks in January 2015. Later that year, a separate network of French and Belgian fighters by the Islamic State hit Paris again, this time killing 130 people in attacks at bataclan concert hall, the national stadium, and in bars and restaurants. The courts in france’s terrorism court are charged ?? to buy weapons, cars and help with logistics. Most people say they thought he was helping plan a common crime. Three, including the only woman accused, are being tried in absentia after leaving to join the Islamic State.Attacks from 7 to 9 January 2015 began during an editorial meeting in Charlie Hebdo, whose offices had not been identified and monitored by police since the publication of caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad years earlier. Brothers Cherif and Said Kouachi shot dead 12 people before stealing a vehicle and fleeing. They claimed the attacks on behalf of al-Qaida.Two days later, on the eve of Jewish Saturday, Amedy Coulibaly broke into the Hyper Cacher supermarket and killed four hostages on behalf of the Islamic State group when the brothers took control of a printing press on the outskirts of the French capital. The attackers died that day during near-simultaneous police raids. Investigators took days longer to realize that Coulibaly was also responsible for the seemingly random death of a young policewoman the day before. It took more weeks to unravel the network of small criminals and friends in the neighborhood linking the three attackers. By then, Coulibaly’s wife had gone to Syria with the help of two brothers also accused ?? on the case. Most of the 11 who will appear insist that their help in mass murders was involuntary.» Since 2012, terrorism has capitalized on the predominant crime around these terrorists,» said Samia Maktouf, a lawyer for one of the survivors of the attack. «They are not second violins, they are complete accomplices. You know, when you provide a gun, it’s not for partying.» Despite a lot of support globally, the attacks were also seen as a massive intelligence failure. The French authorities ended a telephone intervention in one of the Kouachi brothers a few months before they broke into the publishing offices. At least one had trained with al-Qaida in Yemen and had been convicted of a previous terrorism offence. The brothers escaped easily and traversed multiple trawls before getting caught two days later.
