(Newser) – The kosher supermarket in France where four people were killed in the Jan. 9 siege that followed the Charlie Hebdo shootings in Paris has re-opened. A small throng, including reporters, gathered outside the doors of the Hyper Cacher market yesterday before the 9am opening, as employees completed last-minute preparations, the New York Times reports; even the French interior minister stopped by. "Being here now is an act of conscience," says one local who shopped at the market just an hour before Islamic militant Amedy Coulibaly took hostages. "We have to show the world we are here." One big change: None of the former employees returned to work.
