( Hyper Cacher, the Paris kosher supermarket that was the scene of an Islamist terrorist attack in January, re-opened on Sunday. 

The store was badly damaged in the attack and has been fully renovated, and re-opened with new staff, AFP reported. 

Muslim terrorist Amedy Coulibaly took nearly 20 Jewish shoppers hostage at Hyper Cacher and killed four of them. The attack came just days after the office of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo was also attacked by a Muslim terrorist in a shooting that killed 12 people.
