MADRID – Spain's Interior Ministry says police have arrested a Frenchman they believe supplied the arms to Paris attacker Amedy Coulibaly for use in the January 2015 attacks in the French capital.
A ministry statement on Wednesday said Antoine Denive, 27, from the northern French town of Sainte Catherine was arrested Tuesday in the southern coastal town of Rincon de la Victoria on a European arrest warrant. It said a Serbian man and a Montenegrin man were also arrested.
It said Denive left France several weeks after the January 2015 attacks and moved to the southern Spanish province of Malaga, where he allegedly continued illegal activity under a false identity.
The January 2015 attacks in Paris left 17 victims and three attackers dead.
