ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Coulibaly was one of three gunmen behind a series of militants attacks that were the worst seen in France for decades. Seventeen victims were killed in three days of violence that began with an attack on the Charlie Hebdo weekly and ended with dual sieges at a print works outside Paris and a kosher supermarket in the city. Police officer Clarissa Jean-Philippe, who had just completed her training, was shot by Coulibaly after she responded to an apparently routine car accident in Paris. French security forces later killed Coulibaly after he planted explosives at the Paris deli in a siege that claimed the lives of four hostages. They also shot dead two brothers behind the Hebdo killings, Said and Cherif Kouachi, after they took refuge in the print works.
