The three gunmen who carried out the terrorist attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, in which twelve people were murdered, escaped the scene in a car that was later abandoned outside a kosher restaurant in northern Paris.
JSSNews, a French Jewish website, published a picture of the car parked on the sidewalk outside the restaurant, a patisserie named “Patistory” located on the Rue de Meaux. French police are continuing their search for the attackers.
Jonathan-Simon Sellem, the editor of JSSNews, told The Algemeiner that there was, as yet, no evidence that the terrorists had planned to attack the restaurant.
Earlier today, car exploded outside a synagogue near Paris just hours after the Charlie Hebdo attack.
The explosion, in the mixed Muslim-Jewish suburb of Sarcelles — the site of violent anti-Semitic demonstrations last summer, during the war in Gaza between Israel and Hamas — took place at approximately 2.30 local time.
Sarcelles Mayor Francois Pupponi said that the car explosion was an “accidental, unrelated incident” not connected to the Charlie Hebdo shooting.
