Jawad Bendaoud, accused of harboring Islamist militants after the 2015 terror attacks in Paris, has been reveling in his chance to put on a show in court.Aitboulahcen, a cousin of Abaaoud, was the sister of Youssef Aitboulahcen, the third defendant at the trial, who is accused of failing to alert the police about a terror plot.Anti-terror police killed Abaaoud, Akrouh and Hasna Aitboulahcen in a ferocious assault on Bendaoud's flat on Nov. 18, five days after the attacks.Bendaoud and Soumah are facing six years in prison, while Aitboulahcen faces five years.Police released four men late Friday who had been detained last week as part of the enquiry into the weapons used for deadly attacks, also in 2015, on the office of the Charlie Hebdo magazine and a Jewish supermarket, a legal source said.
