Terrified shoppers hid in a freezing cold storage room for five hours after Islamic terrorists stormed a Paris supermarket.
Hearing the sound of gunfire above them about thirty Jewish people buying kosher food for the Sabbath cowered in minus three temperatures praying they would not be found.
One of the shoppers, 36-year-old father-of-four Johan Dorre was able to call a friend on his mobile phone to tell him they were trapped two floors below the ground floor, where six hostages were held at gunpoint.
Then as the siege unfolded he called his uncle, who offered words of comfort as he waited behind Police barriers with hundreds of anxious residents of the quarter who had been evacuated from their homes by Police.
‘Johan and the others were terrified that they would be discovered by the terrorists and were forced to huddle together like frightened animals to avoid hypothermia’, another uncle Jacob Katorza told the Daily Mail, just minutes after hearing that his nephew had been freed unharmed.
‘He was shopping for the kosher cakes and meat delicacies which we Jewish people enjoy on the holy day when he heard shots being fired above on the ground floor and immediately took cover with other shoppers in the basement.
‘Johan was to speak to my brother Haim by phone for only two or three minutes and told him to stay quiet and wait until help arrived.

French police have named the hostage taker as Amedy Coulibaly, 32, while also claimed a woman named Hayat Boumeddiene (left), 26, is involved.
Coulibaly is believed to be the one responsible for shooting a policewoman dead in south Paris on Thursday. It has now been suggested the attack may have been an aborted attempt to attack a Jewish school.
The young woman seems to have gotten away from the French Police!
Then this…. From BBC
French President Francois Hollande described the events as “a tragedy for the nation”.
In a televised address, he thanked the security forces for their “bravery [and] efficiency”, but added that France still faced threats. “We have to be vigilant. I also ask you to be united – it’s our best weapon,” he said.
“We must be implacable towards racism,” he added, saying that the supermarket attack was an “appalling anti-Semitic act”.
“Those who committed these acts, these fanatics, have nothing to do with the Muslim faith.”
Meanwhile, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said there had been a “clear failing” in French intelligence.
“If 17 people die, this means mistakes have been made,” he said, including those killed in attacks on Wednesday and Thursday in the toll.
Me thinks that Monsieur Francois Hollande is Un Français stupide! To say that these terrorists acts had nothing to do with the muslim faith….. WTF? I guess the terrorists just decided to go in and get some Kosher food for the trip! PFFFT! If Monsieur Hollande doesn’t know that islam is anti-semetic by nature then he don’t know ca-ca!
