The Associated Press

SOFIA, Bulgaria (AP) Bulgarian authorities say they have arrested a French citizen believed to have links to one of the Kouachi brothers suspected of the terror attack against Charlie Hebdo, the French satirical magazine.

Darina Slavova, regional prosecutor of the southern province of Haskovo, said that Fritz-Joly Joachin, 29, had two European arrest warrants issued against him, including one for participating in a criminal organization with a terrorist aim.

Speaking on the private Nova TV channel, Slavova said the warrant cited his possible association with one of the attackers, Cherif Kouachi.

In Paris, President Francois Hollande led a ceremony honoring the three slain police officers.
