F our people who died in an attack against a Paris kosher grocery were killed when the assailant entered the store - not when police tried to rescue them.
Paris prosecutor Francois Molins also said that several people have been handed preliminary charges in the investigation following the three-day rampage that has terrified France.
They include family members of the three suspects, who were killed by police today.
He said that gunman Amedy Coulibaly killed four people when he entered the kosher market in eastern Paris today. Fifteen hostages in the store were later set free.
Mr Molins added that one of the two gunmen in the other stand-off today was wounded in the throat in a shoot-out with police before being killed later.
