Prosecutor's office: 5 people detained in connection with attacks in France freed from custody

The Paris prosecutors' spokeswoman says five people detained in connection with the three days of bloodshed in France have been released from custody.

Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre said the five were freed from custody late Saturday.

The gunmen who carried out the attacks on the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, a policewoman outside Paris, a kosher market and a printing house all died after standoffs with police.

Family members of the attackers have been given preliminary charges, but Thibault-Lecuivre said no one was in custody.

The widow of one of the men, who is named as an accomplice, is believed to have traveled to a Turkish city near the Syrian border and then all traces of her were lost.
