The four hostages murdered in the kosher supermarket siege in Vincennes, Paris, have been named.

The Conseil Representatif des Institutions Juives de France (Representative Council of French Jewish Institutions, or CRIF) released the names of all four victims in a short statement.

Yoav Hattab, Philippe Braham, Yohan Cohen, and Francois-Michel Saada, were all killed when a gunman burst into the supermarket and took a number of hostages.

The victims reportedly range in age from 20 to 63-years-old.

CRIF condemned gunman Amedy Coulibaly for having cold-blooded and anti-semitic motives for the attack.

In a short statement, CRIF commented: "These French fellow citizens were slaughtered coldly and pitilessly, because they were Jewish."
