Charlie Hebdo Trial Further Delayed by Coronavirus

The French trial over the 2015 terrorist attack on the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish supermarket is further delayed.


One of the main suspects is infected with the coronavirus and could participate via a video connection, but the lawyer objected.

Due to corona infections, the process had to be interrupted repeatedly. The case has now been postponed until at least next week.

Fourteen alleged accomplices of the Islamic extremists are on trial. Three of them are fugitives.

Seventeen people were killed in the terror attacks on Charlie Hebdo, of which the first edition was published exactly fifty years ago, and supermarket Hyper Cacher.

The three perpetrators were killed by the police.
