PARIS, March 9 (UPI) -- Four people, including a French policewoman, have been arrested in connection to Amedy Coulibaly---the gunman who took and killed hostages in Paris at a kosher supermarket in January.

The female officer worked in the northeast of Paris at the Fort de Rosny Sous Bois, which is an important intelligence center. She was reportedly involved with a relative of Coulibaly known as Amar R.

There have been reports of communication between Coulibaly and Said and Cherif Kouach, who orchestrated the Jan. 7 attacks on satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, where a dozen people died. He released a video confirming the connection.

Coulibaly attacked the Hyper Cacher market in Porte de la Vincennes, France, on Jan 9. Four hostages and Coulibaly died in the siege.

Multiple hostages, who survived the attack, said Coulibaly tried but failed to access the Internet on his personal computer inside the market. He then had one hostage help him access another computer in the market where he appeared to be manipulating video or image files.
