Paris: The Hyper Cacher Jewish supermarket in Paris that became the site of a bloody hostage drama during a jihadist attack in January will re-open Sunday, according to a management source.

The kosher shop has been fully renovated and will re-open with new staff, the source said on Friday.

The Hyper Cacher store on the eastern edge of Paris was badly damaged during the attack on January 9, when jihadist Amedy Coulibaly killed four Jewish hostages before he was shot dead when police stormed the building.

His assault came two days after two other jihadists killed 12 people at the offices of the Charlie Hebdo magazine.
