Brussels (AFP) – French Islamist gunman Amedy Coulibaly bought most of the weapons used in last week’s Paris attacks in Belgium, Belgian newspapers reported Wednesday.The Kalashnikov rifle and rocket launchers used by brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi in the Charlie Hebdo magazine attack were bought by Coulibaly near the Gare du Midi railway station for less than 5,000 euros ($7,000), Flemish newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws reported.

The Scorpio assault rifle that Coulibaly used during a hostage-taking at a Jewish supermarket in Paris also came from Brussels, the newspaper said, quoting “very well placed sources.”

Belgian prosecutors declined to comment immediately when contacted by AFP.
