The four Jewish victims of last week’s terror attack on a kosher supermarket in Paris were buried on Tuesday in Israel.
Here is a look at the victims:
YOHAN COHEN — Cohen worked at the kosher grocery store that was attacked by Amedy Coulibaly. The 22-year-old was friends on Facebook with his colleague Lassana Bathily, a Muslim who saved the lives of shoppers by turning off the stockroom’s freezer and hiding them inside before sneaking out through a fire escape to brief police on the hostage-taker upstairs. Cohen loved rap music. His parents left North Africa in the 1960s to settle in the northern Paris suburb of Sarcelles.
