A Parisian court has found fourteen accomplices of the French Islamist militants guilty of the attacks in January 2015. Seventeen people were killed in the attacks on the Charlie Hebdo magazine, a Jewish supermarket and a policewoman. Eleven of the defendants appeared in court, while three were tried in absentia. All accomplices were found guilty, their charges range from belonging to a criminal network to direct complicity in the January 2015 attacks.

Hayat Boumeddiene, the former partner of Amedy Coulibaly, did not appear in court but was found guilty of financing terrorism and belonging to a criminal terrorist network. Boumeddiene is thought to be alive but on the run.
