Images broadcast from the scene on 9th January, "lacked the most basic precautions" and endangered those still alive inside, said a lawyer representing the group, Patrick Klugman.

Gunman Amedy Coulibaly stormed into the Hyper Cacher Jewish supermarket killing four and taking others hostage during the attack which followed the Charlie Hebdo attacks.

Klugman specifically mentioned news channel BFMTV, which revealed live on air that the group, which included two children, was hiding from Coulibaly in the cold room.
