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 yesterday.

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.
