Three men arrested in connection with the terror attacks in Paris in January have been released without charge, officials said Friday.

The three, aged 22, 25 and 29, from Fleury, south of Paris, allegedly knew some of the seven people already accused of helping Amedy Coulibaly, who killed four people in a kosher supermarket on January 9, two days after shooting a policewoman close to a Jewish school on the outskirts of the city.

The three were released on Thursday night after having been arrested on Tuesday.

Coulibaly, who claimed the attacks in the name of the Islamic State group, had been working in tandem with the Kouachi brothers, who gunned down 12 people after bursting into the offices of the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine, which had published cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.
