I really had no idea, but I certainly would have been surprised if they would be willing to sit in a prison for the rest of their lives (no idea what the laws are in France regarding the death penalty).

The death penalty in France was abolished by President Franšois Mitterand long ago, and later by the E.U. . In Switzerland. there WAS a death penalty in war times (Sonderbundskrieg 1847/48), Deutsch-Franz÷sicher Krieg, WW-ONE, WW-TWO) but even this was abolished in 1945 .

I'm sorry, but I don't see how what they did defends their religion. Their religion was not under threat. If anything, they wanted to assert the supremacy of their religion, and perhaps reflect their own fragile belief in their own religion. What they did is denigrate their own religion.

What they wanted is to assert the supremacy of their particular creed above everything else. Two practicing devout Muslims of Arab origin, the corrector of Charlie and a policeman, got killed by them. The attackers in reality attacked Islam. That woman who is still alive now may have two enemies, the Police Corps and relatives + friends of those two. If she gets caught by police, her chance of survival may be better
