The store served as the focal point of the attack perpetrated by jihadist Amedy Coulibal, who killed four Jewish hostages before police shot him dead during a raid of premises.


The fatal hostage incident took place merely three days after a separate terrorist attack at the office of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo left 12 dead in the French capital.


The store was due to re-open its doors amid concerns of increasing anti-Semitism in France, which is home to and estimated 600,000 Jews - the largest Jewish community in Europe.
