Paris chief prosecutor Francois Molins told a press briefing that the two Kouachi brothers and Amedy Coulibaly, those responsible for the attacks on French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday and a kosher supermarket in Paris on Friday, had an arsenal of weapons and had set up booby traps.

He added that preliminary investigations showed frequent communication between the two groups.

"It appears from the investigation, especially from the exploitation of the phone-tappings, that Cherif Kouachi's spouse had called more than 500 times to Amedy Coulibaly's partner, Hayat Boumeddiene, which shows permanent and strong links between the two couples," Molins said.
